SUMMARY The article provides data on the study of polysaccharides of compass lettuce herb. From the raw material of compass lettuce, polysaccharides were isolated by fractions: water-soluble polysaccharides, pectin complex, hemicellulose A and hemicellulose B. The monosaccharide composition of the isolated fractions was determined and their quantitative content was determined. The monosaccharide composition of the fractions is represented by galactose, glucose, arabinose, xylose, rhamnose, galacturonic and glucuronic acids. The IR spectra of the isolated fractions were determined, confirming their relation to polysaccharides. The sorption activity of the
pectin complex in relation to methylene blue has been studied. The results obtained show the promise of using
pectins from compass lettuce herb as a sorbent.
