1. From the culture fluid of the ray fungusActinomyces olivoreticuli four individual antibiotics, olivomycins A, B, C, and D have been isolated.

2. The acid degradation of olivomycins A, B, C, and D has been carried out with the formation of the aglycone olivin and the carbohydrates olivomycose, olivomose, olivose, oliose, and (or) their derivatives.

3. The qualitative and quantitative monomeric composition of olivomycins A, B, C, and D has been elucidated and their empirical formulas have been established.
