An enantiomer is
a stereoisomer that is a mirror image of another molecule
Chirality occurs when stereoisomers have mirror images that are
NOT superimposable
How many different substituents are required on a carbon atom for it to be chiral
Four
A carbohydrate that gives two molecules when it is completely hydrolyzed is known as
Disaccharide
A monosaccharide that consists of 5 carbon atoms one of which is a ketone group is a
ketopentose
The reduction of monosaccharides produces
Sugar alcohols
In the L isomer of a Fischer projection on a monosaccharide, the OH group furthest from the carbonyl group is written on the
Left of the bottom chiral carbon
The sugar also known as dextrose and clood sugar is
glucose
A glycosidic bond between two monosaccharides can also be classified as
Ether bond -0-
Which sugar is NOT a reducing sugar
Sucrose
The conversion between alpha and beta anomers is called
mutarotation
A carboxylic acid is prepared from an aldehyde by
Oxidation
The reaction of an ester with Na OH is known as
Saponification
A monosaccharide that contains 4 carbon atoms, one of which is in an aldehyde group is classified as
Aldotetrose
In a disaccharide two monosaccharides are joined by what kind of bond
Glycosidic
Maltose is a
Disaccharide
Which grouop of carbohydrates cannot be hydrolyzed to give smaller molecules
monosaccharides
Oxidation of a monosaccharide produces
Sugar acids
The functional group in acetic acid is called the
carboxyl group
The reactions that will form an ester in the presence of an acid catalyst are
a carboxylic acid and an alcohol
What is the method of preparing carboxylic acids from alcohols or aldehydes
oxidation
