Alginates are (1→4)-linked linear copolysaccharides composed of β-D-mannuronic acid (M) and its C-5 epimer, α-l-guluronic acid (G). Several strategies to synthesize organically modified alginate derivatives have been reported, but almost all chemistries are performed in either aqueous or aqueous-organic media.

Tetraalkylammonium hydroxides have been found to mediate regioselective deacylation of cellulose esters. This deacylation surprisingly shows substantial selectivity for the removal of the acyl groups at O-2/3, affording cellulose-6-O-esters by a simple, efficient one-step process. The mechanism for this deacylation
