Abstract:

Glucose has hydroxyl and aldehyde groups in its structure. The different connection orders, locations, manners, and spatial relations of the two groups have significant impacts on its structure, physical and chemical properties. In this paper, on the basis of reviewing the related knowledge of aldehyde and alcohol, we take the teaching unit of glucose as an example to instruct students analyzing in depth the interaction and influence of these functional groups in the glucose structure. While helping them to achieve knowledgeable mastery, we tried to cultivate gradually undergraduates' ability of scientific thinking.

Key words: Glucose, Scientific thinking, Structure, Aldehyde and alcohol
