Which process can hydrolyse glycosidic bonds in disaccharides?

Acid hydrolysis

What is the product of hydrolyzing sucrose with dilute acid?

Glucose and fructose

What type of bond is formed between two monosaccharides when the -OH group of one sugar reacts with the anomeric carbon of the other?

O-glycosidic bond

Why is fructose called 'invert sugar' when obtained from the hydrolysis of sucrose?

It is strongly levorotatory

Which type of reaction represents the formation of acetal from a hemiacetal during the bonding of monosaccharides?

Condensation reaction

Which type of acid can hydrolyze glycosidic bonds in disaccharides?

Hydrochloric acid

What is the product of hydrolyzing sucrose with dilute acid?

Glucose and fructose

Which type of reaction represents the formation of acetal from a hemiacetal during the bonding of monosaccharides?

Condensation reaction

Why can glycosidic bonds in disaccharides be hydrolyzed by acid but not cleaved by base?

Acids can break covalent bonds easily

Test your knowledge on carbohydrates, glycosidic bonds, and the hydrolysis of disaccharides to yield constituent monosaccharides. Learn about the formation of O-glycosidic bonds and the difference in cleavage by acid and base.
