Abstract

Seaweeds in general derive their importance from their carbohydrate content. Part of the carbohydrate is in the form of cellulose which cannot be hydrolysed by ordinary means; and the rest in the form of polysaccharides either as agar or as algin, the latter being considered as a polymerised form of d-mannuronic acid. Kylin (1913) is of the opinion that simple reducing sugars constitute the first products of photosynthesis and that they occur in very small quantities.
