Abstract:To better understand the interaction of water with hyaluronan, two uronic acids, beta-methyl glucuronic acid and beta-methyl galacturonic acid, were prepared, and their hydroxyl protons were studied using low temperature NMR. These results were compared to calculations of proton exchange in uronic acids. Calculations suggest that OH4 in glucuronic acid should exchange with solvent, whereas in galacturonic acid it should not. The NMR observations confirm the calculated predictions.
