What is ethyl glucosamide
The relationship between configuration and biochemical properties
The simple types of sugar and the glucosides pp 83-97 | Cite as
Perhaps the most important and at the same time the most interesting chapter in sugar chemistry is that which deals with the changes in properties caused by slight deviations in the stereochemical configuration of the carbohydrate molecule. Although the molecular weight and gross formula of the molecule remain the same, even the smallest modification in the spatial arrangement of the groups linked to the carbon atom chain is sufficient to produce the most profound change in biochemical behavior. How sensitive the relationship between structure and biological behavior is, and how small the possible deviations are, we will see from the following examples.
“Configuration” is understood to mean the position of the hydroxyl groups in relation to the skeleton of the carbon chain. Change means transferring from the right side of the chain projected onto the plane of the paper to the left or vice versa from the left to the right.

This chapter is part of the Springer Book Archives digitization project with publications that have appeared since the publisher's inception in 1842. With this archive, the publisher provides sources for both historical and disciplinary research, which must be viewed in a historical context. This chapter is from a book that was published before 1945 and is therefore not advertised by the publisher in its political-ideological orientation typical of the time.
