  1. Carbohydrates Chapter 25 Chapter 25

  2. Carbohydrates • Carbohydrate: a polyhydroxyaldehyde, a polyhydroxyketone, or a compound that gives either of these compounds after hydrolysis. • Monosaccharide:a carbohydrate that cannot be hydrolyzed to a simpler carbohydrate. • they have the general formula CnH2nOn, where n varies from 3 to 8. • aldose: a monosaccharide containing an aldehyde group. • ketose: a monosaccharide containing a ketone group.

  3. 25.1 A.Monosaccharides • Monosaccharides are classified by their number of carbon atoms.

  4. C H O C H O H 2 C H O H C = O C H O H C H O H 2 2 Glyceraldehyde D ihydroxyacetone (an aldotriose) (a ketotriose) Monosaccharides • There are only two trioses. • Often the designations aldo- and keto- are omitted and these compounds are referred to simply as trioses, tetroses, and so forth. • although these designations do not tell the nature of the carbonyl group, they at least tell the number of carbons.

  5. Monosaccharides • Glyceraldehyde contains a stereocenter and exists as a pair of enantiomers.

  6. B. Fischer Projections • Fischer projection:a two dimensional representation for showing the configuration of carbohydrates. • horizontal lines represent bonds projecting forward. • vertical lines represent bonds projecting to the rear. • the only atom in the plane of the paper is the stereocenter.

  7. C. D,L Monosaccharides • In 1891, Emil Fischer made the arbitrary assignments of D- and L- to the enantiomers of glyceraldehyde.

  8. D,L Monosaccharides • According to the conventions proposed by Fischer. • D-monosaccharide: a monosaccharide that has the same configuration at its penultimate carbon as D-glyceraldehyde; that is, its -OH is on the right when written as a Fischer projection. • L-monosaccharide: a monosaccharide that has the same configuration at its penultimate carbon as L-glyceraldehyde; that is, its -OH is on the left when written as a Fischer projection.

  11. D. Amino Sugars • Amino sugar: a sugar that contains an -NH2 group in place of an -OH group. • only three amino sugars are common in nature. • N-acetyl-D-glucosamine is a derivative of D-glucosamine.

  12. E. Physical Properties • Monosaccharides are colorless crystalline solids, very soluble in water, but only slightly soluble in ethanol. • sweetness relative to sucrose:

  13. 25.2 Cyclic Structure • Monosaccharides have hydroxyl and carbonyl groups in the same molecule and exist almost entirely as five- and six-membered cyclic hemiacetals. • anomeric carbon: the new stereocenter created as a result of cyclic hemiacetal formation. • anomers:carbohydrates that differ in configuration at their anomeric carbons.

  14. A. Haworth Projections • Haworth projections: • five- and six-membered hemiacetals are represented as planar pentagons or hexagons, as the case may be, viewed through the edge. • they are most commonly written with the anomeric carbon on the right and the hemiacetal oxygen to the back right. • the designation - means that the -OH on the anomeric carbon is cis to the terminal -CH2OH; - means that it is trans to the terminal -CH2OH.

  15. Haworth Projections • six-membered hemiacetal rings are shown by the infix -pyran- so become pyranose. • five-membered hemiacetal rings are shown by the infix -furan- so become furanose. O O Furan Pyran

  16. Haworth Projections

  17. B. Conformational Formulas • five-membered rings are so close to being planar that Haworth projections are adequate to represent furanoses.

  18. Conformational Formulas • other monosaccharides also form five-membered cyclic hemiacetals. • here are the five-membered cyclic hemiacetals of D-fructose.

  19. Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) • L-Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is synthesized both biochemically and industrially from D-glucose.

  20. C H O H C H O H 2 2 O H O H H O O H L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) • L-Ascorbic acid is very easily oxidized to L-dehydroascorbic acid. Both are physiologically active and are found in most body fluids. H H O O oxidation O O reduction H H O O L-Dehydroascorbic acid

  21. Conformational Formulas • for pyranoses, the six-membered ring is more accurately represented as a chair conformation.

  22. Conformational Formulas • if you compare the orientations of groups on carbons 1-5 in the Haworth and chair projections of -D-glucopyranose, you will see that in each case they are up-down-up-down-up respectively.

  23. C. Mutarotation • Mutarotation: the change in specific rotation that occurs when an  or  form of a carbohydrate is converted to an equilibrium mixture of the two.

  24. 25.3 A. Glycosides • Glycoside:a carbohydrate in which the -OH of the anomeric carbon is replaced by –OR. • methyl -D-glucopyranoside (methyl -D-glucoside).

  25. Glycosides • Glycosidic bond:the bond from the anomeric carbon of the glycoside to an -OR group. • Glycosides are named by listing the name of the alkyl or aryl group bonded to oxygen followed by the name of the carbohydrate with the ending -e replaced by –ide. • methyl -D-glucopyranoside. • methyl -D-ribofuranoside.

  26. N-Glycosides • The anomeric carbon of a cyclic hemiacetal also undergoes reaction with the N-H group of an amine to form an N-glycoside. • N-glycosides of the following purine and pyrimidine bases are structural units of nucleic acids.

  27. N-Glycosides • the b-N-glycoside formed between D-ribofuranose and cytosine.

  28. B. Reduction to Alditols • The carbonyl group of a monosaccharide can be reduced to an hydroxyl group by a variety of reducing agents, including NaBH4 and H2/M.

  33. Oxidation to Uronic Acids • in humans, D-glucuronic acid is an important component of the acidic polysaccharides of connective tissue. • it is also used by the body to detoxify foreign hydroxyl-containing compounds, such as phenols and alcohols; one example is the intravenous anesthetic propofol.
