Tollens' test is intended to identify "reducing sugars," or sugars with the capacity to serve as reducing agents. Specifically, sugars with hemiacetal groups can undergo mutarotation, allowing them to be oxidized by CuO. The process of mutarotation requires ring opening, which occurs at a hemiacetal group. Thus, sugars with hemiacetal groups can be oxidized and can thus function as reducing sugars.
