Carbohydrates Literal meaning of name. Empirical formula can be written C n ∙(H 2 O) n
Background image of page 2
Groups of Carbohydrates Monosaccharides – simple sugars Oligosaccharides (“a few sugars”) Polysaccharides Oligosaccharides and polysaccharides are polymers formed from sugars by the elimination of water. Oligosaccharides are usually covalently joined to other molecules. Polysaccharides may be huge in size.

Chirality Sugars typically are chiral compounds. The D and L systems are in widespread use in naming sugars. D and L refer to the absolute configuration of D- and L-glyceraldehyde. Most oxdized C atom is up in the projection formula and CH 2 OH is down. OH on left is L.

Classification of Sugars Aldoses Have free aldehyde group Ketoses Have keto group In classifying sugars as D or L, one looks at the configuration of the highest numbered asymmetric carbon atom.

Fig. 7-2, p. 182 Aldoses These are all reducing sugars because they have a free aldehyde group in the open chain form. You should know passively the structures shaded in blue.

Fig. 7-3, p. 183 Ketoses Fructose is a reducing sugar even though it lacks an aldehyde group because, in alkaline solutions, it is in equilibrium with glucose.

Ring Structures In solution sugars cyclize to form ring structures. Formation of ring structures introduces an additional asymmetric C atom into a sugar. The two new forms are termed anomers .
