Carbohydrates Problem Set – Winter 2010 Answers 1. Complete the Fischer projection and/or chair conformation templates of the three sugar compounds below. 2. When β -D-galactose is dissolved in water it has an initial optical rotation of + 52.8° which slowly increases to + 80.2°. Using all significant chemical structures and a few brief sentences, explain what is occurring. In water, beta D-galactose undergoes mutarotation (equilibrium between open chain carbonyl form and ring hemiacetal form). The mixture of alpha and beta has a different optical rotation than pure beta form (alpha and beta anomers are diastereomers and it is not possible to predict the specific rotation of one from the other).
