    A Bound Form Of Silicon In Glycosaminoglycans And Polyuronides

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4268099 Abstract Silicon was found to be a constituent of certain glycosaminoglycans and polyuronides, where it occurs firmly bound to the polysaccharide matrix. 330-554 ppm of bound Si were detected in purified hyaluronic acid from umbilical cord, chondroitin...
