    • Abstract

       

      Tamarind seed jellose undergoes fermentative degradation in aqueous solution yielding a hexasaccharide which is composed of xylose, galactose and glucose in the molecular proportion of 2:1:3. The carbohydrate, which may be named Tamarindose, decomposes at 228–30°C. and has a specific rotation of + 73·8° at 30°. Its acetate melts with decomposition at 172–74° and has a specific rotation of + 43·6° in methyl alcoholic solution at 30°.
