Caption: Computer graphics representation of a molecule of sucrose (cane sugar), a disaccharide consisting of two linked monosaccharide molecules (glucose & fructose). Saccharides or sugars are comprised of rings of 4 or 5 carbon atoms (green) & one oxygen atom (red). Attached around the ring are hydroxy (OH) groups. Glucose & fructose (monosaccharides) are comprised of single rings. Sucrose (cane sugar) consists of two rings joined together. Polysaccharides such as starch and cellulose consist of hundreds of glucose rings joined in a chain. Cellulose is one of the most abundant naturally-occurring polymers. The image was modelled using Chemical Design's Chem-X software.
