Abstract Partial acid-hydrolysis of the gum exudates from Hakea sericea and H. gibbosa yields L-arabinose, D-galactose, D-xylose, D-mannose, D-glucuronic acid, the aldobiouronic acid GlcA (beta 1,2)Man, and a dimer of this acid alpha-linked from D-Man to O-4 of GlcA. Methylation analysis showed the modes of linkage of the sugar units to be typical of those present in plant polysaccharide exudates of the arabinogalactan type, while partial acid hydrolysis and Smith degradations established the position of linkage of the peripheral sugar assemblies at O-3 of D-Man in the interior core. Some minor differences were noted between the molecular structures of the gums from these two species of Hakea, the Gal:Ara ratio being higher for H. sericea gum.
