The mass spectra of 52 partially methylated and acetylated methyl glycosides of galactose, mannose, glucose, and N-acetylglucosamine have been determined. Each derivative was identified on the basis of its gas-liquid chromatography retention time and mass spectra. The analysis of methyl ethers obtained by methanolysis of fully methylated glycans of α1-acid glycoprotein is described as an application of the method. © 1981.
