Give an example of a sterioisomer that has the same repeating molecular units that differ in the 3-D arrangement? how do they differ?
- Cellulose vs Starch
- Cellulose is trans
- Starch is Cis
The celulose is a beta linkage- rigid and have folds, it is the most abundant polysacchride and its very strong
Starch is an alpha linkage which is more flexable
they have minor conformational differences but they have very different reactivity
