2. Turn the -OH on carbon 5 around so it is close to the aldehyde carbon (carbon #1).

3. Form the hemi-acetal using the carbon #5 -OH and the carbonyl at carbon 1.
a. As you make the hemi-acetal, write out the mechanism by which this occurs. Concentrate your efforts on what is happening at C5 and C1. Review the formation of hemi-acetals in Chapter 18 of Wade.
b. Draw your product in a chair conformation with the CH2OH of carbon 6 at the top of your model.
c. Redraw your product as the Haworth (flat) projection.
d. Did you build the alpha or Beta anomer?
e. In what position (axial or equatorial) are the bulky substituents at each carbon more likely to be?
f. How many chiral carbons are there in the model now?

Carbohydrates

I will need to write a Power Point Presentation, please help me with some ideas. I will need to include information on the following:

o What carbohydrates are
o The difference between simple and complex carbohydrates
o How sugars are broken down and used in the body
o The benefits that carbohydrates provide to the body
· Give examples of foods that are considered healthy sources of carbohydrates.
· Include information on one of the following disorders related to carbohydrates: lactose
intolerance, diabetes, or hypoglycemia. Be sure to include a definition, how it affects the
body, and some of the courses of action used to treat and manage the disorder.
