1. In a study of the carbohydrates ofEremurus regeli Vved., according to the period of development of the plant, it has been found that in the leaves the maximum amount of pectin substances is present in the period of the ripening of the seeds. In the tuber roots, water-soluble polysaccharides form the main component and they are present in maximum amount after the withering of the epigeal part.

2. A preliminary investigation of the pectin substances from the leaves has shown that they belong to the heteropolysaccharides consisting of galacturonic acid and the neutral monosaccharides xylose, rhamnose, arabinose, and galactose.
