Textbook Problem

Draw the structural formulas for α-D-glucose and β-D-glucose.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The structural formulas for α-D-glucose and β-D-glucose has to be drawn.

Concept introduction: Carbohydrates are defined as the polyhydroxy aldehyde or ketone or any compound that can be hydrolyzed to them. Glucose is an example of monosaccharide (Carbohydrates) and has a molecular formula C6H12O6. Glucose can exist in open structure as well as a ring structure. It is used as energy resource in most of the organisms.

Explanation

The structures of α-D-glucose and β-D-glucose are almost identical except the position of the hydroxyl group at the anomeric carbon. Anomeric carbon is the carbon number 1. The hydroxyl group at the anomeric carbon in α-D-glucose lie below the plane while in

β-D-glucose it lies above the plane. The structural formulas for α-D-glucose and β-D-glucose are as follows,
