1. Water-soluble polysaccharides have been isolated from the bark and stems ofAlcea hyrcana Grossh. with yields of 2.2% and 1.6%, respectively; they contain uronic acids, glucose, arabinose, and xylose.

2.The quantitative amounts of these monosaccharides in samples of the isolated polysaccharides have been determined.
