Seaweed carbohydrate analysis

Analyzing carbohydrate content of seaweed based samples. Solid sample is hydrolyzed, acid insoluble residue is filtered out and the monosugar components are analysed using ion chromatography. Acid insoluble residue is analysed for its ash content. The determined components are fucose, glucose, arabinose, xylose, galactose, mannose, rhamnose, mannitol, glucuronic acid, guluronic acid, and galacturonic acid. The results are given as weight % value (oven dry basis).
