The polysaccharide LbGp1 from Lycium barbarum L. was sulphated with sulphur trioxide-pyridine complex in DMF, yielding two sulphated polysaccharides, which were LbGp1-OL-SL with 13.7% sulphate content, and LbGp1-OL-SH with 27.4% sulphate content. The sulphation patterns were analysed using a GC-MS...
