Abstract:
A method has been developed for the crystallisation of hyaluronates in the form of films and fibres which has also been applicable to all the mucopolysaccharides. A survey of crystallisation of hyaluronates from difterent sources under various conditions has shown that a number of backbone conformations and packing schemes are attainable in the solid state and that there is considerable mobility between them. Trial conformations have been proposed for the various conformations discovered and preliminary structure factor computations have been performed for one of the conformations. The significance of these various conformations has been discussed and ideas about their interaction with water and biological function have been put forward.
