The preparation should be in a manner which helps the students to concentrate more in areas which carry more marks.
Gist Of The Chapter
1.Carbohydrates- These are optically active polyhydroxy aldehydes or ketones due to presence of chiral `C’ or the compounds which produce these on hydrolysis except dihydroxy acetone is not optically active.
(i) Monosaccharide’s – Those carbohydrates which cannot get hydrolysed e.g. glucose ,fructose, galactose etc.
(ii) Oligosaccharides- Those carbohydrates which give to or more monosaccharide’s on hydrolysis e.g. sucrose on hydrolysis gives glucose and fructose. Raffinose on hydrolysis gives glucose, fructose and galactose.
(iii) Polysaccharides- Those carbohydrates which on hydrolysis give large number of monosaccharide’s hydrolysis.eg starch, cellulose, glycogen.
(i) Reducing Sugars- Those which reduce Fehling’s or Tollen’s reagent. They have free aldehydic groups, eg , glucose, fructose , galactose
(ii) Non Reducing Sugars- Those which do not reduce Fehling’s or Tollen’s reagent. They do not have free functional group ,e.g., sucrose
4. Glucose- It is a monosaccharide’s with molecular formula C6H12O6
(i) From Sucrose
C12H22O11 + H2O -------> C6H12O6 + C6H12O6 ( Only from sucrose)
(C6H10O5)n + nH2O -------> C12H2211 + H20 ------> 2C6H12O6
