Abstract

The mucilaginous jelly from the leaves of Aloe vera is composed of at least four different partially acetylated glucomannans that differ in their glucose-to-mannose ratios and acetyl contents. Methylation and periodate-oxidation studies indicate that the glucomannans are linear polymers containing (1→4)-glycosidic linkages.
