  • E. V. Evtushenko

Methyl (methyl α-D-glucopyranosid)uronate (I) has been obtained by the catalytic oxidation of methyl α-D-glucopyranoside with oxygen in the presence of platinum on carbon with a yield of 31%. The partial methylation of (I) followed by preparative liquid column chromatography on silica gel has provided a convenient method of obtaining all the methyl ethers of (I) in the individual state.
