- ... A systematic investigation of the sulfurous acid hydrolysis of dialdehyde starch (DAS) was made in which temperature, time and concentration of reagents were varied. Optimum yields of apparent D-erythrose and of glyoxal of 78 and 81 % oj theory were obtained by hydrolyzing 1.8 % of DAS in water containing 14.7 moles oj sulfur dioxide per mole oj DAS jar 1.33 hr at 100⁰C. Increased reversion and de ...
