ABSTRACT
Galactose oxidase produced a C-6 aldehyde in various terminal-containing galactose hydroxylamines for the simultaneous in situ generation
of an A-B type condensation for the construction of unique oxime polymers. Molecular weights of the corresponding polymers were determined
to be in the range of 4200-8900 g/mol, respectively. This indicates that approximately 20-25 sugar units were incorporated in these unique
polymers.
Synthetic or modified natural carbohydrate polymers have
a wide variety of practical applications including hydrogels,1
adsorbents,2
biorecognition agents,3
and glycoconjugate
assemblies.4 Carbohydrates conjugated to a variety of materi-
