Take the fragments of the sample and immerse them in 0.02mol/L iodine solution. After a few minutes, they will be dyed brown-black. Take them out, add water and soak them, and then gradually turn purple.
Take 4ml of 0.5% sample solution, add 0.5ml of hydrochloric acid, heat on a water bath for 30min, add 1.5ml of sodium hydroxide test solution (TS-224), and 6ml of copper tartrate alkaline test solution (TS-80), put it on a water bath Heating should produce a red precipitate.
Ability to form hydrogel Prepare a 1.0% sample solution with boiling water in a flask, and put the flask into water at 30°C for 15 minutes. A firm, durable gel should form. Keep the flask in water at 70°C for 1h, the gel should not melt.
Precipitation with ammonium sulfate solution When 0.5% of 40°C warm sample solution is added to half the volume of 40%, 40°C warm ammonium sulfate solution, precipitation should occur. In this way it can be distinguished from alginic acids, gum arabic, gum ghatti, karaya, pectin and tragacanth.
Precipitation is formed in case of lead acetate solution. When 0.5% warm sample solution is added to 1/5 volume of basic lead acetate test solution (TS-129), precipitation should occur. This test distinguishes agar from methylcellulose.

When making powdery agar, after the gel is cut into strips, freeze at 13°C, separate, dissolve, adjust to 6-7% glue with water, and spray dry at 85°C. In order to improve the performance of the product, it can be treated with lye to remove part of the sulfate group to increase the content of 3,6-depoly-L-galactose.
