Thirty years ago Smith & Cook (1953) published the first account of fractionation of carrageenan from the red alga Chondrus crispus, and introduced the terms Kand X-carrageenans to indicate KC1insoluble and -soluble polysaccharides. Ten years later Rees (1963) published the first in a series of papers entitled `The carrageenan system of polysaccharides' . In the succeeding decade Rees and his students described the masked repeating structures of ,<and Àand four other types of carrabiose… CONTINUE READING
