Article

Summary

1. The rate of oxidation of xylan with sodium periodate depends on the amount of oxidizable monosaccharide residues forming its links and on their quantitative ratio.

2. The rate of oxidation of monosaccharide residues of the structural links of the xylans is determined by their structure.

3. The highest rate of oxidation is characteristic for D-glucuronic acid residues and the lowest for L-arabofuranose residues.
