MyRSC Update: Re: Tollens and Glucose

Re: Tollens and Glucose

Sugars like glucose are shown in books as ring structures, however, they are actaully an equilbrium mixture of the ring and a chain, albeit the position I belive is more towards the ring. The ring has an aldehyde group on one end and an alcohol group on the other, which enables ring closure to form what used to be called a hemiacetal.  I assume that the aldehydr does the reduction, and removal of it shifts the equilibrium to allow further reaction.
