A uronic acid — containing polysaccharide was isolated from the green marine algal speciesUlva lactuca by extraction with water, dilute hydrochloric acid solution, and ammonium oxalate solution. The latter agent was the best for extracting the highest amount of the polysaccharide material which contained glucuronic acid (11.4%), glucose (3.64%), arabinose (5.01%), xylose (4.55%), and rhamnose (27.33%). Partial acid hydrolysis studies and attempted fractionation on DEAE-cellulose pointed out… CONTINUE READING
