Glycosidic Bond

Concept #1: Glycosidic Bond

Practice: The molecular formula of glucose is C6H12O6. What is the molecular formula for an oligosaccharide made by linking 10 glucose molecules together by dehydration synthesis? (Hint: Consider how many glycosidic bonds form).

Concept #2: O-Glycosidic Bonds & N-Glycosidic Bonds

Concept #3: Naming Glycosidic Bonds

Example #1: Name the following glycosidic bonds:

Practice: What is the name for the glycosidic linkage in the following glycoside?

Practice: Determine the name of the glycosidic bond of the following disaccharide.

Practice: Which two molecules below do NOT contain a 1,4 glycosidic linkage?
