Sucrose. Molecular model of the organic compound sucrose (C12.H22.O11), commonly called table sugar. It is a disaccharide combination of the simple sugars glucose and fructose. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (pink), hydrogen (white) and oxygen (yellow). The conceptual sugar-like coating here can represent the electron charge distribution around the molecule.
