Abstract:  Different methods for determining the oxidizing agent consumption during the periodate oxidation of glucose have been compared. It has been found that the methods requiring alkaline medium are not suitable for the periodate determination. Using these methods, a further periodate consumption may occur during the determination. On the basis of unexpected differences in the determination of free and bound formic acid formed by periodate oxidation of glycerol and mannitol a possible course of the periodate oxidation of 1,2-diols is discussed.
