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.

what product is formed when adipic acid is heated?
 
 
Adipic acid is hexane-1,6-dioic acid (CH 2 ) 4 (COOH) 2 .On heating adipic acid we will get its anhydride (CH 2 ) 4 (CO) 2 O.As per rule COOH groups are attatched to different C-atoms so...

​Q . IF THE DIPOLE MOMENT OF OH- BOND IN WATER IS 1.5 D AND THE BOND ANGLE H-O-H IS 104 0 20 ’ . CALCULATE THE DIPOLE MOMENT OF WATER MOLECULE( COS 104 0 20 ’ = -0.2476).
 
 
The bond angle between two OH=104deg20min The resulatant dipole moment is avector quantity H2o is a molecule having two OH bond in a molecule.Thus the resultant dipole moment is sqrt (u1^2...

the half life for a first order reaction is 25 minutes. calculate the rate constant and apply it ti find the time required for 85% complition of the reaction ?
 
 
we have the relation between the half lide and the rate constant as half life t1/2=.693/k k is the rate constant or k=.693/t1/2 =.693/25 min^-1 =2.772*10^-2 min^-1 time required for 25%...

The inversion of cane sugar proceeds with constant half life of 500 minute at pH = 5 for any concentration of sugar. However, if pH = 6, the half life changes to 50 minute. Derive the rate...
 
 
This is explained as followsWe are given that the half life at pH = 5 and at any concentration of sugar is 50 minutes while the half life at pH = 6 and any concentration of sugar is 500...
