1

Mutarotation

When Cyclic compounds shift from one anomeric form to another with the right chain form as an intermediate

2

Haworth projections

Represent 3 dimensional structures

3

Anomeric carbon

The new chiral center formed in ring closure, it was the carbon containing the carbonyl in the straight chain form

4

Alpha anomers

Have the alcohol group on the anomeric carbon trans to the free -CH2OH group

5

Beta anomers

Have the alcohol group on the anomeric carbon dis to the free -CH2OH group

6

Monosaccharides that undego intramolecular reactions can form

Hemiacetals and hemiketals
