REMARKS - The pronounced peak set at m/z 99, 110 and 128 is typical for 6-deoxyhexose polymers, m/z 110 and 128 representing the monomeric building blocks minus one or two molecules of water. The presence of sulphate groups becomes evident from the peak at m/z 64 (S02+"). The peak at m/z 126 may point to small amounts of hexose residues. In the spectrum obtained from a methanol suspension the peak at m/z 99 is less pronounced.
