    Abstract

    The number-average degree of polymerisation of glucans may be determined by measurement of the sorbitol (D-glucitol) content of an acid hydrolysate of the borohydride-reduced glucan, using sorbitol dehydrogenase. The method is applicable to both linear and branched polymers of either a- or ß-D-glucose. © 1971.
