Abstract:  Three neutral oligosaccharides were isolated from the hydrolyzate of peach gum polysaccharide. Their separation was accomplished on a cross-linked starch by elution with distilled water. We investigated only the disaccharide giving on hydrolysis D-xylose and L-arabinose and after reduction with sodium tetrahydroborate D-xylose and L-arabitol. 2,3,4- Tri-O-methyl- D-xylose and 2,3-di-O-methyl-L-arabinose were identified by paper chromatography in the hydrolyzate of the methylated disaccharide. Mass spectrometry showed that both D-xylose and L-arabinose were in pyranose form linked together by 1 -> 4 glycosidic bond. On the basis of optical rotation and infrared spectroscopy the glycosidic bond was assumed to be ß. Thus the studied disaccharide had the structure 4-0-ß-D-xylopyranosyl-L-arabinopyranose.
