REMARKS - The spectrum shows a pattern consistent with a relatively pure, but highly complex carbohydrate fraction containing neutral sugar residues as well as N-acetyl aminosugars. The presence of the latter is evidenced by ion series at m/z 17, 67, 81, 109, 125, 137 and 151. High signals at m/z 114 and 128 appear to indicate the presence, of pentose and deoxyhexose residues respectively. Note the relatively low intensity of sulphur-containing ion signals at m/z 34, 48 and 64.
