How to use d-glucose in a sentence
It is closely related to ordinary d-glucose, with which it occurs in many fruits, starches and also in honey.
The form described above is laevo-rotatory, but it is termed d-fructose, since it is related to d-glucose.
This latter property is remarkable, as most of them are compounds of the strongly dextrorotatory d-glucose.The Chemistry of Plant Life | Roscoe Wilfred Thatcher
