The condensation of simple aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes and of ketones with cyclic and acyclic glucose derivatives has been considerably investigated and, thus, isopropylidene, ethylidene, benzal and many similar and related compounds are well known: for example, benzaldehyde condenses readily with methyl glucoside and this typical reaction may be illustrated by the equation which is formulated on the following page. It is, therefore, a continuation of this work to attempt to effect similar condensations employing, as the carbonyl component, open-chain sugar derivatives which possess a free aldehydic group and to determine whether such ‘glucosydlidene' compounds are available.
