SOMEONE ASKED 👇
How do the results of Benedict’s test indicate that hydrolysis of sucrose and starch occurred?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
Benedict’s solution contains Copper, which can accept electrons from reducing sugars and consequently change color. A positive Benedict’s sugar test will produce an orange to brick-red color. Reducing sugars have either a free aldehyde functional group or a free ketone functional group as part of their molecular structure; starches and other polysaccharides lack these functional groups. If Benedict’s test changes color ( pos. reaction ) polysaccharides must be hydrolyzed.
Benedicts Test Results
Will you get a positive or negative result when you test the solution of sucrose with Benedict’s reagent after hydrolysis has occurred? What will the test results look like
