Formation of glucopyranosylglycolic acids during the hydrolysis of cellulose
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1969
A solution of glucose and glycolic acid in hydrochloric acid gives rise to the alpha- and beta forms of glucopyranosylglycolic acid when evaporated. Polymerized glycolic acid is formed as well. These reactions complicate analysis of cellulose degradation materials.
