What Is Mutarotation? Give Example And Structure

3 years ago


Answers : (1)


Mutarotation is the change in the optical rotation that occurs by epimerization (that is the change in the equilibrium between two epimers, when the corresponding stereocentersinterconverted).

Cyclic sugars show mutarotation as α and β anomeric forms are interconvert. The optical rotation of the solution depends on the optical rotation of each anomer and their ratio in the solution.

Is the ratio of the percentage by mole of elements in a compound equal to the ratio of no of atoms of the corresponding elements ?
No it will not be so. consider the example of Al2O3.let us take 102 gm of AL203 It implies 1 mole.therefore 1 mole of al203 will contain 2 mole of aluminiunm and 3 mope of oxygen.in mass %...
