IR Spectral absorption bands ν(OH) (3 700 to 3 400 cm-1) of the both anomers of methyl D-threofuranoside, methyl-D-erythrofuranoside, and their monomethyl ethers have been studied in dilute tetrachloromethane solution. For these 11 compounds positions and intensities of individual bands are discussed with respect to possible formation of intramolecular hydrogen bonds.
