Abstract: A water-soluble 4-0-methyl-D-glucurono-D-xylan of Mn = 21.563 has been isolated from the leaves of A. officinalis L., var. Rhobusta. On the basis of the results of methylation analysis and, 13C NMR spectral data it was concluded that the polysaccharide was built of (1 → 4)-linked β-D-xylopyra- nosyl residues,  ≈70 % being unsubstituted, ≈ 5 % carrying a single sub- stitution at 0-2 and/or 0-3, and ≈ 11 % being doubly branched at 0-2 and 0-3. 4-O-Methyl-D-glucuronic acid was attached to 0-2 as a single terminal unit (1 unit per 7 units of xylose).
