Glucose is a carbohydrate. α -D-glucose Carbohydrates are poly-hydroxy aldehydes and ketones. Some have cyclic (ring) structures.

Open form Glucose in solution is mostly “alpha” and “beta”, with just a little “open form”. Notice the carbons are numbered (1 through 6). α -D-glucose β -D-glucose

α -D-glucose β -D-glucose The “-OH” is a nucleophile, and will attack the carboxylate to make the cyclic structure.

Some carbohydrate vocabulary. The “ anomeric carbon ” is the carbon on the aldehyde or ketone that reacts with a hydroxyl group to form the cyclic structure. Hemiacetals & hemiketals - The cyclic form that some sugars can make, when one of the hydroxyl groups reacts with the aldehyde or ketone carbon. The “anomeric carbon” of glucose.
