Partial methylation of carbohydrates
1. The kinetics of the partial methylation of methyl β-L-arabinopyranoside by the methods of Haworth, Kuhn, and Hakomori have been studied and the compositions of the products have been determined.
2. In the methylation of methyl β-l-arabinopyranoside by the methods of Haworth and Kuhn, the following sequence of relative reactivities is observed: 2-OH>3-OH>4-OH.
