Abstract: A programme SCAN was elaborated for the 13C NMR based structural analysis o f regular polysaccharides, which represents our earlier programme (Lipkind G. M. et al. Carbohydr. Res. 1988. vol. 175, #1, p. 59-75) modified for IBM-PC-compatible personal computers. SCAN was successfully applied for the structural elucidation of 24 polysaccharides of bacterial origin. Optimal combinations of the computer-assisted method with other approaches for analysis of carbohydrates and scopes of application of the programme are discussed.
