The report will show that methylation of glucose with methyl sulphate and sodium hydroxide, if carried out at lower temperatures and in less alkaline solutions than usually employed, yields methylated gamma glucoside. The value of (1) the rate of oxidation by potassium permanganate and (2) the acid concentration required for hydrolysis, as tests for gamma glucosides, will also be discussed.
