Textbook Problem

The major structural difference between starch and cellulose is the

  1. a. identity of the monosaccharide unit present
  2. b. ring size of the monosaccharide unit present
  3. c. type of glycosidic linkage between the monosaccharide units present
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The major structural difference between starch and cellulose has to be identified.

Concept introduction: Starch contains two different polyglucose polysaccharides: amylase and amylopectin.  Starch contains glucose units which are joined together by α(14) glycosidic linkages.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

The structure of starch involves glucose units which are joined together by α(14) glycosidic linkages as shown below.

The most abundant naturally occurring polysaccharide is cellulose.  It is an unbranched polymer which contains glucose units.  These glucose units are joined together by β(14) glycosidic linkages
