The electrochemical and charge storage properties of different lignins inside biopolymer electrodes were studied and correlated with the chemical variations of the lignins as indicated from the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic data. The varying fractions of monolignols were found to correlate with charge storage properties. It was found that as the sinapyl to guaiacyl (S/G) ratio increased both the specific capacitance and charge capacity increased considerably. This indicates that quinones generated on S-units can contribute more to charge storage in the biopolymer electrodes.
