Abstract

The products formed when glucose is heated in aqueous sulphuric acid, with or without pretreatment with formic acid, have been separated and estimated. The major products are 1:6-anhydro-β-D-gluco-pyranose and -furanose, while the remainder consists of the group of glucose disaccharides, in which isomaltose and gentiobiose predominate. The amounts of sugars so formed provide a guide to the quantities of reversion products likely to be encountered as artefacts in the examination of the structures of polyglucoses by the method of partial acidic hydrolysis.
