The gas-chromatographic determination of sugars and glucuronic acid

Abstract

Continuing a study of the gas-chromatographic behavior of the sugars encountered in steroid and triterpene glycosides [1] we have analyzed a mixture of six sugars (D-gtucose, D-galaetose, D-xylose, D-fucose, L-rhamnose, and L-arabinose) and D-glucuronic acid. To perform such an analysis it has been proposed [2] to determine the acid and the sugars separately. We have found a possibility for the direct qualitative and quantitative analysis of such a mixture. The compounds were ehromatographed in the form of silylated methyl glycosides [1, 2].
