A New Method for determining Ketohexoses in the Presence of Aldohexoses


A SLIGHTLY modified anthrone method1,2 has been described3 which is suitable for the quantitative estimation of carbohydrate in chromatographic fractions. 10 ml. of a 0.02 per cent (w/v) solution of anthrone in 70 per cent (v/v) sulphuric acid is mixed with 1 ml. of the test solution, heated for 7.5 min. in a boiling water-bath and the optical density of… (More)
