General Met h o ds 19 methylsulphenyl carbanion is necessary for the complete methylation of saccharides. 119 This can be demonstrated by the addition of triphenylmethane, which forms a red colour in the presence of the carbanion. Methylation of bacterial lipopolysaccharides has been accomplished using methyl trifluoromethane sulphonate in trimethylphosphate as a solvent. 120 The determination of the sugar sequence and glycosidic bond arrangement of heteroglycans by an integrated analytical scheme, which includes methylation analysis, periodate oxidation, acetolysis, and 0-elimination, has been proposed.
