Chem 215 F07 Notes – Dr. Masato Koreeda - Page 1 of 6. Date: November 7, 2007 Chapters 14.8; 23-1, 2, 5, and 7: Carbohydrates Carbohydrate nomenclature: http://www.chem.qmul.ac.uk/iupac/2carb/ Carbohydrates: • Polyhydroxylated aldehydes and ketones and their equivalents • Important constituents of both plants and animals • D-glucose: The primary source of energy in the human body (CHOH)n CH 2 OH O H e.g., Hexoses: Sugars possessing six carbon atoms. • Pentoses: Sugars possessing five carbon atoms. • Aldoses: Sugars containing an aldehyde group. • Ketoses: Sugars containing a ketone group. • Monosaccharides: Carbohydrates that do not undergo cleavage on hydrolysis (treatment with water) to smaller molecules.

Glucose reacts like an aldehyde since small amounts of the open-chain form are present at equilibrium. Glucose has 4 stereocenters 2 4 = 16 stereoisomers possible 8 pairs of enantiomers (1) Fischer projection formulas (a) (+)-Glyceraldehyde: configurational reference compound for all monosaccharides H OH CH 2 OH O H D- (+)-glyceraldehyde vertical bonds go in and horizontal bonds come out small upper-case D configurational designation sign of optical rotation at the sodium D-line (589 nm) C H OH CH 2 OH O H C HO H O H CH 2 OH R R - (+)-glyceraldehyde This stereochemistry is defined as "D" if the OH is projected to the right. S -(-)-Glyceraldehyde has an L-configuration. • D-Stereochemistry and the sign of optical rotation have no direct correlation, although many D sugars are dextrorotatory ( d or +).
