D-(+)-Glucose has been used as a standard for the estimation of total sugar in hydrolyzed starch by phenol-sulfuric acid method.
It has been used in the preparation of the following liquid media for culturing yeast cells:
• CM glucose broth minus HIS (histidine)
• CM glucose broth minus URA (uracil)
• CM glucose broth minus TRP (tryptophan)

General description

D-(+)-Glucose is a monosaccharide which is the main source of energy in the form of ATP for living organisms. The effect of adding glucose as a supplement to the infection media of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts has been studied. The polymer-bound glucose template has been demonstrated to be useful in the multi-step parallel synthesis of various compounds.

Determination of Water Content in D-(+)Glucose anhydrous Using Karl Fischer Titration

Anhydrous glucose hardly dissolves in the methanolic media used in KF titration. To improve the solubility and thus shorten the titration time, either the titration should be carried out at 50�C, or ...
