Suitable aminoglycuronic amides for purposes
of this invention can be prepared by the methods
disclosed in the aforementioned co-pending ap

aminomannuronic amide, l-aminoglucuronic
amide, l-aminogalacturonic amide, and other
aminoglycuronic amides.
The hydrolysis of such amino-glycuronic
amides can be carried out by treating the amino
