- ... Various factors affecting the estimation of the tryptophan content of wool, by methods based on acid hydrolysis, are discussed. It has been shown that when wool is hydrolyzed in a strong acid medium in presence of p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde, the tryptophan-aldehyde complex formed decomposes with time and, thus, a correct estimation of tryptophan content is difhcult. When wool is hydrolyzed with b ...
