Polysaccharides of brown algae VIII. A study of pelvecyan and sargassan by methylation
- 26 Downloads
It has been shown by the methylation method that pelvecyan and sargassan are polysaccharides of similar structures with a high degree of branching of the carbohydrate chains. Fucose, xylose, and galactose are located at the nonreducing ends of their molecules, and mannose and galactose form points of branching of the carbohydrate chains of these polysaccharides.
The positions of the bonds between the monosaccharide residues in pelvecyan and sargassan have been determined.
