1,4-β-D-Cellohexaitol (borohydride reduced cellohexaose)
Molecular Formula: C36H64O31
Molecular Weight: 992.9
Purity: > 90%
High purity 1,4-β-D-Cellohexaitol (borohydride reduced cellohexaose) for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis.
Hexasaccharide from hydrolysis of cellulose and borohydride reduced.
Borohydride reduced oligosaccharides are particularly useful as substrates in reducing sugar assays (e.g. Nelson Somogyi) as they do not give rise to the large background / blank value observed for the analogous non-reduced native oligosaccharides.
