Glucose is an aldose, hexose, reducing sugar whose anomeric carbon forms a hemiacetal functional group in the linear form. Cyclic forms include 2 pyranose (6 member ring) & 2 furanose (5 member ring).
You can also build glucose with our advanced student organic chemistry model set or the class organic chemistry model set. The class biochemistry model set builds the linear version of glucose in the Orbit x-peg style.
You can build any 6 carbon sugar ring with our AtoMag magnetic molecular model. Quickly change the position of any oxygen atom to show different structural isomers; magnetic hydrogens are optional. If you buy two, you can build any disaccharide.

Our 3D Molecular Model Builder witll show the parts needed to build it. Choose model style "Orbit-flexible" to match this kit. D-glucose (dextrose) is a linear form, alpha-d-glucopyranose & beta-d-glucopyranose will show 6 member rings; alpha-d-glucofuranose & beta-d-glucofuranose will show 5 member rings.
