The thesis is divided into two parts, which in turn are subdivided as follows: Account of the various methods for the preparation of glucosan. Proof of the constitution of glucosan, together with the general problem of its relationship to starch and cellulose. An investigation of the acid products obtained during the methylation of glucosan by means of silver oxide and methyl iodide. And: An investigation of the conditions necessary for the polymerisation of glucosan, and of the properties and constitution of the products.
