The crude polysaccharide from cystocarpic Callophyllis variegata was fractionated with potassium chloride yielding three minor fractions which precipitated between 0.05-0.10 M KCl, 1.20-1.25 M KCl and 1.80-2.00 M KCl, and a main product soluble in 2.00 M KCl. These fractions were analysed and structural analysis of the major one was carried out by methylation, FT-IR and 13C NMR.
