are sugars where the CH2OH group has been oxidised to form a carboxylic acid group. Uronic acids play important functions in nature and exist in varying amounts and proportions in different biomass types. Click here
to learn more about uronic acids and their abundance in nature.
We are able to determine the contents of five different uronic acids: glucuronic acid
, 4-O-Methyl-D-Glucuronic Acid
, mannuronic acid
We can determine the uronic acid composition of lignocellulosic biomass, seaweed
, and liquids. This analysis package is suitable for the analysis of the uronic acid composition of liquid samples. In order for you to use this package to determine the uronic acid composition of non-seaweed biomass samples it will be necessary to first obtain a hydrolysate suitable for analysis. Examples of analysis packages that will produce such a hydrolysate from biomass include
"P7 - Lignocellulosic Sugars"
"P9 - Lignocellulosic Sugars and Lignin"
, and "P10 - Sugars, Lignin, Extractives, Ash"
