Lignin of Mango seed hard cover is prepared by Klason method and compared with reported four different types of tropical hardwoods and was studied using FT-IR spectroscopy. There were observable differences in the FT-IR spectra of the lignin studied. Lignin from the more durable and more resistant wood was found to contain less guaiacyl groups than that from the softer and less resistant wood. The strength and resistance of the wood might be related to its lignin content.
