INTRODUCTION
Glucose
• Formula: C6H12O6
• Isomer: D-glucose + L-glucose
• D-Glucose exists in 3 phases: α D-Glucose, β D-Glucose
and open-chain D-Glucose

Open-chain D-glucose

INTRODUCTION
Glucose
• The α anomer has been traditionally believed to be
more stable than the β one in the gas phase
• Experiments: α D-glucose/ β D-glucose = 36:64 in water
=> An amount of α D-glucose changed into β D-glucose
with the presence of water

CONCLUSION
• The geometric optimizations and Raman spectras of α
D-glucose, β D-glucose and open-chain D-glucose in
both dry and wet condition have been successfully
calculated and analyzed
• The appearance of high intensity peak at range 34003500 cm-1 in case α D-glucose interacts with 2 H2O
molecules (the same as pure β anomer) suggested that
an amount of α anomer has transformed into β Dglucose
• The results are in good agreement with the experiments
