Abstract: 6-O-Trityl-cellulose 2,3-bis-chlorosulphate was prepared by treatment of 6-O-trityl-cellulose with sulphuryl chloride in chloroform at -50 to -70C or in toluene at 20C. Its reaction with dimethylamine and subsequent detritylation afforded cellulose dimethylamidosulphate having DS ca. 0,6. According to 13C NMR spectral data, the di-methylamidosulphate groups substitute mainly position 2 of the glucopyranoside residues in the polymer. The model methyl 4,6-O-benzylidene-β-D-glucopyranoside 2,3-bis-chlorosulphate was transformed under similar conditions into the corresponding 2- and 3-dimethylamidosulphates isolated in approximately equal amounts. Their structure were elucidated by NMR spectroscopy and by mass-spectrometry of acetylated derivatives
