- Glucose is a carbohydrate and it is one of the smallest units of sugar
- Its chemical formula is C6H12O6
- Glucose are hexoses – 6 carbon atoms sugars
- In total, there are 24 atoms that form the molecule
Draw 6 carbon molecules and draw arms except for the first one
Draw 5 hydrogen to carbon bonds
(4 on one side and 1 on the other)
Fill remaining spaces with ( OH ) group.
* Remember to transpose
( OH ) to —> ( HO ) for the left side to show the oxygen bonded to carbon
Complete the top end with hydrogen bonds and 1 oxygen double bond
Voilà – The glucose molecule stick diagram!
Now check the elements. All elements must add up!
Now, try drawing the molecule without referring to the diagram!
