"Residual lignin carbohydrate complexes (RLCC) were isolated enzymatically
from spruce and pine pulp. The RLCCs contained 4.9–9.4% carbohydrates,
enrichment of galactose and arabinose compared to the original pulp
samples. The main carbohydrate units present in all studied RLCCs were
4-substituted xylose, 4-, 3- and 3,6-substituted galactose, 4-substituted
glucose and 4 and 4,6-substituted mannose. These units were assigned to
carbohydrate residues of xylan, 1,4- and 1,3/ 6-linked galactan, cellulose
