Introduction to Carbohydrates: Structure and Properties—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Explore the structure and properties of different types of carbohydrates and learn how they can be identified. In the Introduction to Carbohydrates: Structure and Properties—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, five carbohydrate samples are provided with their identities scrambled. Unscramble the carbohydrate “code” by performing four classification tests in sequence.

Concepts

  • Carbohydrates
  • Polysaccharides
  • Monosaccharides
  • Disaccharides
  • Classification Tests
  • Reducing vs. Nonreducing Sugars
