As the molecular structures of CTA and CS are based on the cellulosic backbones composed of monosaccharide units linked by [beta]-1,4 glycosidic linkages, their FTIR spectra are similar.
Some disaccharides, such as sucrose, do not have this characteristic, hence called non-reducing sugars, and are reduced only after they undergo hydrolysis of the glycosidic bond.
The antioxidant activity of a polysaccharide depends on its combined structural characteristics, including the configuration of the glycosidic bond, molecular weight, and monosaccharide content (Zheng et al.

They cleave the glycosidic linkage in the peptidoglycan component of gram-positive bacterial cell walls, which ultimately leads to cell death (Ellison and Giehl, 1991).
In contrast to flavonoid O-glycosides, C-glycosides have a different fragmentation profile, with intra-glycosidic ring cleavage instead of glycosidic linkage breakdown, making their analysis more difficult.
2000) concluded that g-irradiation could increased the total phenolic contents compared with raw samples and that might be due to the decomposition of some insoluble phenolic compounds or could be attributed to the release of phenolic compounds from glycosidic components and the degradation of larger phenolic compounds into smaller ones by g-irradiation (de Camargo et al.
