The structure of benzylidene alpha methylglucoside and of 2:3 dimethylglucose
MetadataShow full item record
After discussing the condensation portion of methylglucoside with benzaldehyde and the chemistry of the product, the structure of benzylidene methylglucoside, together with that of the dimethyl glucose, is reviewed. A few observations upon the effect of the substitutions upon the molecular rotation of methylglucoside is then inserted before an account is given of the chemical behaviour of dimethyl glucose, as contrasted with that of the unsubstituted sugar. Finally, the experiments on which the Thesis is based, prefaced by notes explaining the technique adopted, complete the work.
