Problem: Draw the β-anomer predicted through the cyclization of D-mannose6m
Predict the products and indicate the relative stereochemistry for the following transformations. When necessary indicate the major product.
Glucose (A) cyclizes to a 6-member ring sugar as shown below. Mannose (B) is only slightly different from glucose. Which is the correct cyclic structure of mannose? (Hint: just compare A and B and map the difference onto the cyclic form.)
