Abstract

The spectral characteristics of solutions of eighteen representative monosaccharides in 79 per cent sulfuric acid have been determined for solutions maintained for 2 hours at 25° and 15 minutes at 100°. The use of these data for the identification of ketohexoses and 6-desoxyaldohexoses has been pointed out, as has their application to the quantitative determination of certain monosaccharides when present singly or in admixture with other monosaccharides, either as the monosaccharides or as components of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.
