1. The structure of the aldobiuronic acid isolated from the xylan of cotton-plant stems has been established by its reduction and the hydrolysis of the reduced product.

2. From a study of the products of the hydrolysis of the methylated xylan from cotton-plant stems the positions of attachment of the side chains in the molecule of the xylan and their structure have been determined, and a most probable structure for the xylan molecule has been put forward.
