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