Preliminary analysis of the composition of polysaccharide fractions

  • Yu. S. Ovodov
  • M. N. Adamenko


A simple and convenient method for analyzing polysaccharide fractions isolated from natural sources has been proposed.

The method is based on ion-exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and gel filtration on Bio-Gels using small columns and automatic monitoring of the separation with the aid of a flow-through ultraviolet densitometer. The method is characterized by rapidity and good reproducibility.
