3B) is assigned to the first overtone of the fundamental CH stretching vibrational mode and is due to the furanose or pyranose ring (invariable constituent of hemicellulose).
The absorption bands at [lambda]=1672 nm and 1712 nm are also due to CH in the aromatic skeletal and furanose (or pyranose) regions (Osborne and Fearn 1988, Williams and Norris 1990, Siesler et al.
1) are a novel class of bicyclic DNA analogs in which the 2' and 4' positions in the furanose ring are joined via an O-methylene (oxy-LNA), S-methylene (thio-LNA), or amino-methylene (amino-LNA) moiety (20-24).
