    • The acetylation and methylation of starch 

      Rutherford, Jean Kerr (University of St Andrews, 1931-09) - Thesis
      The colloidal nature of starch, and the high molecular weight of the complex has rendered it impossible to study the constitution of this polysaccharide by other than degradation reactions. Accordingly starch has been ...
    • The constitution of glucose diacetone 

      Cramond, George Alexander (University of St Andrews, 1925-03) - Thesis
      The reaction which takes place between acetone and sugars or polyhydric alcohols, first described by Fischer, produced several beautiful crystalline compounds of greater interest. Their value, however, to the study of ...
    • The constitution of starch : a study of the methyl, acetyl, and benzoyl derivatives of starch 

      Caldwell, Walter Anderson (University of St Andrews, 1934-01) - Thesis
      The field of the Chemistry of Starch is so wide and the complexities involved are so great that any attempt to solve the problems of the constitution of starch cannot be spread over the whole front, but must necessarily ...
    • The constitution of β-glucosan and its relationship to glucose, starch and cellulose 

      Oldham, John Walter Hyde (University of St Andrews, 1923) - Thesis
      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 ...
    • Investigations on cellulose 

      Robertson, George James (University of St Andrews, 1924-06) - Thesis
    • The molecular structure of inulin 

      Stevenson, John Whiteford (University of St Andrews, 1928-04) - Thesis
    • Researches on methyl alcohol 

      Menzies, Robert Charles (University of St Andrews, 1921) - Thesis
    • The structure of benzylidene alpha methylglucoside and of 2:3 dimethylglucose 

      Purves, Clifford B. (University of St Andrews, 1929-02) - Thesis
      After discussing the condensation portion of methylglucoside with benzaldehyde and the chemistry of the product, the structure of benzylidene methylglucoside, together with that of the dimethyl glucose, is reviewed. A few ...
    • The structure of mannitol 

      Steele, Ettie Stewart (University of St Andrews, 1919) - Thesis
    • Walden inversion in the pentose series 

      Honeyman, John (University of St Andrews, 1944-01) - Thesis
      The interconversion of sugars in nature has for long been a source of interest and speculation. Many attempts were made to postulate a mechanism for the smooth and facile transformations but until 1933 the theories were ...
