Lithium hydroxide, rather than the usual potassium hydroxide, was used to hydrolyze microgram amounts of RNA. After neutralization, lithium perchlorate was removed by extraction with isopropanol-ether; this eliminated the need for desalting of the mixture of nucleotides obtained, which were separated by thin-layer chromatography and measured with a precision of ±5%.
