, the accuracy was only assessed for levoglucosan and it is not clear at all to which extent the LC-MS and GC-MS data for the isomers mannosan or levoglocusan agreed or disagreed with each other. The authors write on page 4550, lines 13-15, that "Comparison between the two methods was only made for levoglucosan since concentrations of the other monosaccharide anhydrides (mannosan and galactosan) were lower than the detection limit for too many samples". I wonder how the data compared for the… CONTINUE READING
