SUCROSE (aD-bD-glyukopiranozil- fructofuranoside; beet or cane sugar), colorless crystals; Most of the solvent gives a stable crystal modification A of methanol - modification B. soluble in water, moderately - in polar organic solvents and aqueous-organic mixtures, not soluble in absolute alcohols, and nonpolar organic solvents.
Sucrose - a non-reducing disaccharide, widespread backing in of plants produced in the process of photosynthesis and stored in the leaves, stems, roots, flowers or fruits. When heated above the melting temperature of the decomposition and coloration of the melt (caramelisation).
Sucrose is commercially produced from the juice of sugar cane or Saccharum officinarum sugar beet Beta vulga-ris; These two plants provide about 90% of world production. Chemical synthesis Sucrose is very complex and has no economic value.
• Sucrose is used in the food industry as a food product (sugars) directly or confectionery composition, and in high concentrations - as a preservative;
• Sucrose serves as a substrate in fermentation processes of industrially producing ethanol, butanol, glycerol, citric acid and levulinic acid, dextran;
• Sucrose is also used in the preparation of medicines;
• Some sucrose esters of higher fatty acids are used as non-ionic detergents, etc..
