Abstract

Between 100 kHz and 2 GHz ultrasonic absorption spectra have been measured for aqueous solutions of D-galactose, D-mannose, D-glucose, D-arabinose, D-ribose, D-lyxose, and D-xylose, as well as of the methylated derivatives methyl-β-D-xylopyranoside, methyl-β-D-glucopyranoside, and methyl-β-D-arabinopyranoside at 25 °C. A 1 molar solution of the latter carbohydrate did not show absorption in excess of the asymptotic high frequency contribution. The other solutions revealed relaxation characteristics which are described by up to three Debye spectral terms per spectrum. The relaxation times τα...τ∈ of these terms indicate the existence of five relaxation regions for the carbohydrate solutions under investigation (500 ≤ τα ≤ 1500 ns; 40 ≤ τβ ≤ 150 ns; 3 ≤ τγ ≤ 12 ns; 0.5 ≤ τδ ≤ 2.1 ns; 0.1 ≤ τ∈ ≤ 0.8 ns; 0.5 ≤ c ≤ 3.2 mol/L; 25 °C). These regions have been attributed to ring isomerization processes such as chair conformational changes and pseudorotations, to rotational isomerization of exocyclic groups, and to a carbohydrate association mechanism. Additional broadband dielectric relaxation measurements of some solutions showed that the reorientational motions of the hydration water molecules are much faster (relaxation time ≤ 0.03 ns) than the aforementioned molecular processes.
