Definition of the noun Anomer

What does Anomer mean as a name of something?


  1. [organic chemistry] Any diastereoisomer of a sugar or derivative differing in configuration only at C-1 of an aldose or C-2 of a ketose.


Anomer: In carbohydrate chemistry, an anomer is a special type of epimer. It is one of two stereoisomers of a cyclic saccharide that differs only in its configuration at the hemiacetal or hemiketal carbon, also called the anomeric carbon. Put simply, the anomeric carbon is the carbonyl carbon, for example a ketone or aldehyde functional group, in a carbohydrate molecule. Anomerization is the process of conversion of one anomer to the other. Anomerization is the anomeric analogue of epimerization.
