Abstract

IN addition to its capacity to oxidize α-glycol groups, periodate oxidizes C - H groups flanked by two α-carbonyl groups1. Such structures are exposed in the reducing-end units of 1 : 2-, 1 : 3- or 1 : 4-linked aldohexopyranose oligosaccharides when the α-glycol groups have been oxidized.
