1. The protopectins of the petioles and leaves of Sosnovskii's cowparsnip and heartleaf colewort have been studied. It has been shown that the protopectins of wild-growing herbs are similar to the pectins of fruit and vegetables.

2. The heterogeneity of the pectins isolated has been shown by the fractionation method. Two main fractions were obtained — neutral (weakly acidic) and acidic.
