Two moles of periodic acid per mole of glycoside are required. One mole of formic acid isproduced.(d)There are two independent vicinal diol functions in this glycoside. Two moles of periodic acidare required per mole of substrate.25.18(a)The structure shown in Figure 25.2 is D-(1)-xylose; therefore (2)-xylose must be its mirrorimage and has the L-confguration at C-4.(b)Alditols are the reduction products of carbohydrates; D-xylitol is derived from D-xylose byconversion of the terminal GCHO to
