    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to identify plants and mainly leaves that contain more lignin(and other biochemicals) than other leaves, to compare them under high resolution spectrometers.
    For instance I know that Tomato skin has a high content of Lignin.
    And pine needles have a high content of Lignin too.
    Some one has more examples to identify this biochemicals?
    I also need plants/leaves/fruits with high content of the following biochemicals:
    Cellulose
    Starch
    Xylan
    Cutin
    Silica
    Ribulose 5-biphosphate
    Peroxidase
    Glutathione
    Ascorbic Acid

    Thank you very much for the tips

    For the starch, it is definitely potato - just put a drop of iodine on the freshly cut tuber to see.
