Caption: Caramelization of sucrose. A test tube with sucrose (table sugar), C12H22O11, is placed over a Bunsen burner flame. When heated, sucrose undergoes caramelization, resulting in characteristic brown colour. Caramelization is chemical decomposition in the absence of oxygen (pyrolysis). It involves several types of reactions that result in many products.
