Preparation of 6-desoxycellulose from 2,3-di-O-acetyl-6-O-tosylcellulose

  • 22 Accesses

Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The reduction of 2,3-di-0-acetyl-6-0-tosylcellulose with sodium borohydride in di-methyl sulfoxide, followed by deacetylation, leads to a 6-desoxycellulose that contains ∼60% of quinovose residues.

  2. 2.

    A modification was proposed for the method of determining the acetyl groups in acetylcellulose and its derivatives by the alkaline saponification reaction.
