Determination of heptoses in bacterial lipopolysaccharides
A method is proposed for the quantitative determination of heptoses in polysaccharide preparations of bacterial origin which eliminates the influence of all the other components present in the mixture on the results of the analysis. The method described is distinguished by high specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility of the results, and also by simplicity of determination. It provides the possibility of determining low concentrations of heptoses in the presence of predominating amounts of other components. The standard deviation does not exceed 3.5%.
