Degraded gum polysaccharide structure from Moringa oleifera Lam. gum polysaccharide by methylation studies
Author(s): RB Singh
Abstract: >Moringa oleifera Lam. plant gum contain a water soluble gum polysaccharide as L-arabinose and D-galactose in 1:4 molar ratio with traces of L-fucose. The degraded gum polysaccharide was methylated by Brown, et.al. and Purdie’s method which yielded degraded methyl sugars as : 2,3,6-tri-O-methyl-D-galactose; 2,3,4-tri-O-methyl-D-galactose; 2,4-di-O-methyl-D-galactose and 2,3,4-tri-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid in 1:6:2:3 molar ratio.
