Seeds cake polysaccharide structure from Madhuca longifolia Linn. Plant by methylation studies
Author(s): Ram Babu Singh
Abstract: Acid hydrolysis of fully methylated water soluble seeds cake polysaccharide from Madhuca longifolia Linn. was carried out by Hakomari and Purdie’s method to produced certain important medicinal chemicals like methyl sugars. It was identified by usual manner and methyl sugars were obtained as : 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-methyl-D-glucose; 2,3,6-tri-O-methyl-D-glucose; 2,3,4-tri-O-methyl-D-glucose; 2,4,6-tri-O-methyl-D-glucose; 2,3,4-tri-O-methyl-L-rhamnose; 3,4-di-O-methyl-L-rhamnose and 4-O-methyl-L-rhamnose were present in the molar ratio of 1:4:1:1:1:1:2 respectively. On the basis of methylation results a tentative polysaccharide structure has been assigned to the Madhuca longifolia Linn. seeds cake polysaccharide.
