Qualitative tests of Carbohydrate Carbohy Carbohydrates drate : are the key source of energy used by

living things. Also serve as extracellular structural elements as in cell wall of bacteria and plant. Carbohydrates are defined as the polyhydroxy aldehydes or polyhydroxy ketones. Most , but not all carbohydrate have a formula (CH2O)n (hence the name hydrate of carbon) In human body, the D-glucose is used. Simple sugars ends with ose. Several classifications of carbohydrates have proven useful, and are outlined in the following table. Classification :

1-Simple sugar (one unit) : Monosaccharides contain one monosaccharide unit. 2-Complex sugar (more than one) : Disaccharides contain two monosaccharide units. Oligosaccharides contain 3-9 monosaccharide units. Polysaccharides can contain more than 9 monosaccharide units. -Complex carbohydrates can be broken down into smaller sugar units through a process known as hydrolysis. ducing and non reducing sugars Reducing and non reducing sugar :If the oxygen on the anomeric carbon of a sugar is not attached to any other structure, that sugar can act as a reducing agent

and is termed a reducing sugar. reducing Non-reducing Solubility of sugars [physical property]: Monosaccharide and disaccharide can be dissolved freely in water because water is a polar substance, while polysaccharide cannot be dissolved easily in water, because, it has high molecular weight , which give colloidal solutions in water. Chemical Properties of

Carbohydrates: 1- Molisch Test: specific for carbohydrates. 2- Benedict's Test: presence of reducing sugars. 3- Barfoed's Test: test used for detecting the presence of monosaccharides. 4- Bial's Test: used to detect pentose [5C] monosacharides. 5- Seliwanoff's Test: distinguish between aldoses and ketoses. 1.Molisch test: This test is specific for all carbohydrates Monosaccharide gives a rapid positive test, Disaccharides and polysaccharides react slower.

Objective: To identify the carbohydrate from other macromolecules, lipids and proteins. Principle: The test reagent(H2SO4) dehydrates pentose to form furfural and dehydrates hexoses to form 5hydroxymethyl furfural. The furfural and 5- hydroxymethyl furfural further react with -naphthol present in the test reagent to produce a -naphthol [Present in the reagent ] Purple ring

furfural -naphthol Purple ring 5- hydroxymethyl furfural Method : 1-Two ml of a sample solution is placed in a test tube. 2-Two drops of the Molisch reagent (which -napthol in 95% ethanol) is added. 3-The solution is then poured slowly into a tube containing two ml of concentrated sulfuric acid so that two layers form, producing violet ring appear as liaison between the surface Tube

separations.Observation Glucose Lactose Starch 2.Benedict's test: Objective: To detect the presence of reducing sugars. All monosaccharides are reducing sugars; they all have a free reactive carbonyl group.

Some disaccharides have exposed carbonyl groups and are also reducing sugars. Other disaccharides such as sucrose are non-reducing sugars and will not react with Benedict's solution -Large polymers of glucose, such as starch, are not reducing sugars, since the concentration of hemiacetal groups is very low. Principle :

carboxylic acid reddish precipitate [copper oxide]. glucose Reducing sugar sucrose lactose

The copper sulfate (CuSO4) present in Benedict's solution reacts with electrons from the aldehyde or ketone group of the reducing sugar in alkaline medium. Reducing sugars are oxidized by the copper ion in solution to form a carboxylic acid and a reddish precipitate of copper (I) oxide. Method : One ml of a sample solution is placed in a test tube. Two ml of Benedict's reagent is added. The solution is then heated in a boiling water

bath for five minutes. ATube positive testobservation is indicated by: The formation of a 1-glucose precipitate. reddish 2-lactose 3-starch 3.Barfoeds Test: Objective : To distinguish between mono- , di- and poly saccharides. Principle : Barfoeds test used copper (II) ions in a slightly acidic

medium. Reducing monosaccharides are oxidized by the copper ion in solution to form a carboxylic acid and a reddish precipitate of copper (I) oxide within three minutes. Reducing disaccharides undergo the same reaction, but do so at a slower rate. -The nonreducing sugars give negative result. Method : Place one ml of a sample solution in a test tube.

Add 3 ml of Barfoed's reagent (a solution of cupric acetate and acetic acid). Heat the solution in a boiling water bath for 6 minutes(after the 3 min check the tubes). Tube glucose lactose starch observation 4. Bials Test: Objective: To distinguish between pentose monosaccharide and hexose monosaccharide

Principle: Bials test uses concentrated HCl as a dehydrating acid and orcinol + traces of ferric chloride [FeCl3] as condensation reagent. The test reagent dehydrates pentoses to form furfural. Furfural further reacts with orcinol and the iron ion present in the test reagent to produce a bluish or green product, while hexoses yield muddy-brown to grey condensation product. Method :

Put 2 ml of a sample solution in a test tube. Add 3 ml of Bial's reagent (a solution of orcinol, HCl and ferric chloride) to each tube. Heat the tubes gently in hot water bath for two minutes. If the color is not obvious, more water can be added to the tube. Tube 1-glucose 2-ribose observation

5.Seliwanoff's Test: Objective: used to distinguish between aldoses (like glucose) and ketoses (like fructose). Principle: Seliwanoff's Test uses 6M HCl as dehydrating agent and resoncinol as condensation reagent. The test reagent dehydrates ketohexoses to form 5hydroxymethylfurfural. 5-hydroxymethylfurfural further condenses with resorcinol present in the test reagent to produce a cherry red product within two minutes. -Aldohexoses react to form the same product, but do so more slowly giving yellow color.

Method : One half ml of a sample solution is placed in a test tube. Two ml of Seliwanoff's reagent (a solution of resorcinol and HCl) is added. The is then heated in a boiling water bath Tube solution observation for

two minutes. 1-glucose 2-fructose Questions: 1- Name the complex formed by the addition of concentrated sulfuric acid to sugar solution and explain the reaction? 2- Why sucrose gives negative Benedict test? 3- Explain, although starch has free hemiacetal bond it gives negative Benedict test? 4- Why glucose (monosaccharide) and lactose (disaccharide) give positive Benedict test? 5- What is the difference between Benedict and Barfoed's reaction? 6- What are the carbohydrates that give positive result with Seliwanoff ? why?
