Of several sugars examined, alkali most affects the rate of dialysis through cellophane of alpha-beta-D-mannose and alpha-beta-maltose. The rates of dialysis of these two sugars are influenced by 0.01 and 0.1N solutions of sodium and potassium hydroxide. The rate of dialysis of sucrose is not influenced by the solutions employed.
