Summary

1. Derivatives of cellulose containing 3, 6-anhydro rings have been synthesized by the following route: cellulose → 6-O-tritylcellulose → 6-O-trityl-2, 3-di-O-acetylcellulose → 2, 3-di-O-acetylcellulose →6-O-tosyl-2, 3-di-O-acetylcellulose → 3, 6-anhydrocellulose.

2. The composition of the 3, 6-anhydrocellulose has been studied by exhaustive acetylation, nitration, and periodate oxidation, and also by IR spectroscopy.
