1,4-β-D-Cellotriitol (borohydride reduced cellotriose)
Molecular Formula: C18H34O16
Molecular Weight: 506.4
Purity: > 95%
High purity 1,4-β-D-Cellotriitol (borohydride reduced cellotriose) for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis.
Trisaccharides 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.
Store below -10oC.
