Bio molecule

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.

2. Classification-

(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  starch, cellulose, glycogen.

3. Sugar-

(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

5. Preparation

(i) From Sucrose

     C12H22O11 + H2O ------->  C6H12O6 + C6H12O6 ( Only from sucrose)                                        

(ii)From Starch

(C6H10O5)n + nH2O -------> C12H2211 + H20 ------> 2C6H12O6
