Abstract

In this work, an intensive study of oligosaccharides (other than sucrose) present in citrus molasses, emphasizing isolation, characterization and determination of constituent monosaccharides has been carried out. Oligosaccharides I-V were isolated by paper chromatography from the 15 percent and 30 percent ethyl alcohol eluates of citrus molasses separated by a charcoal column. The yields were approximately 0.30, 0.20, 0.30, 0.14, and 0.40 percent respectively. The homogeneity of each of the isolated oligosaccharides was confirmed with three solvent systems; n-butyl alcohol:pyridine:water, acetone:n-butyl alcohol:water and n-butyl alcohol:acetic acid:water.
