Hydrolysable tannins consist of a glucose molecule, either in ring (gallotannin) or linear (ellagitannin) conformation with gallic acid residues attached to the hydroxyl groups on each carbon.
In the article titled "Interaction between Gallotannin and a Recombinant Form of Arginine Kinase of Trypanosoma brucei: Thermodynamic and Spectrofluorimetric Evaluation" [1], there were a typo in Equation (7), where the denominator K2 should be corrected to K1, and an error in Table 2, where the values for [DELTA]H, [DELTA]S, and [DELTA]G were incorrectly calculated.

One of the most simple and common hydrolysable tannins is the gallotannin with up to 12 esterified galloyl groups and a core glucose (Figure 1(a)) as the gallotannin from Chinese natural gallnuts [13].
