• Anomeric configuration
  • Sequence

The WCCR houses a 300 MHz Varian NMR for the analysis of soluble oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. Higher field systems are also available through the Purdue NMR facility if needed. NMR provides valuable structural information for carbohydrate research; such as glycosyl residue anomeric configurations, the presence and relative abundance of non-carbohydrate substitutions (such as acetyl groups or methyl ethers) on polysaccharides, and even the sequence of the glycosyl residues in a mixed polymer.
