Raffinose belongs to the group of non-reducing sugars. 1. 4 Polysaccharides The most important polysaccharides, starch, glycogen, and cellulose consist of d-glucose subunits. In the case of starch, which is the major photoassimilation product of green plants, two components have to 13 14 Basics in Carbohydrate Chemistry be distinguished, 20% amylose and about 80% amylopectin. Amylose forms unbranched chains of d-glucose units that are linked by a-1,4′-glycosidic bonds (Fig. 10), while amylopectin is a branched polysaccharide.

These large aggregates in turn make cellulose to be insoluble in water. 12 β-d-Glucose units are linearly linked by β-1,4’-glycosidic bonds forming cellulose. Like cellulose the polysaccharide chitin (Chapter 17) possesses b-1,4′-glycosidic linkages. It differs from cellulose insofar as it 15 16 Basics in Carbohydrate Chemistry exhibits an N-acetylamino group instead of an hydroxy group at the C2 position. Chitin is the major structural component of the shells of crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs, and shrimps as well as of the exoskeletons of many insects.

They are often found to be attached to other molecules (aglycones) and constitute the large group of socalled glycoconjugates.
