Summary Correlation between optical activity and conformational behavior is attempted for the series of oligomannosides and pure mannan polysaccharide. Then, the principle of decomposing the contribution to optical rotation into some basic components is extended to the case of branched polymers. It is shown that the derived relationship fits the experimental rotation data gathered for this series. Conclusions about the influence of branching on solution behavior of galactomannan chains are drawn.
