Abstract : The isomerisation products from the treatment of D-glucuronic acid in an aqueous solution of pH 7 at 100 and 110C have been separated by anion exchange chromatography and identified. The predominant product was D-lyxo-5-hexulosonic acid and the others were L-ribo-5-hexulosonic, D-mannuronic, D-altruronic, and D-alluronic acid (the amounts of which decreased in the order given). L-Iduronic acid, previously stated as the main product by these conditions, was not detected. (Author)
