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.
