Complete H-1 and C-13 NMR spectral assignment of D-glucofuranose

Alexandersson, Elin; Nestor, Gustav;

Abstract

Although D-glucose is the most common sugar in nature, only a few NMR studies have focused on its minor furanose forms, and they have been limited to the anomeric position. Here, complete H-1 and C-13 NMR spectral analysis of alpha- and beta-D-glucofuranose was performed, including signal assignment, chemical shifts, and coupling constants. Selective and non-selective 1D and 2D NMR experiments were used for the analysis, complemented by spin simulations and iterative spectral analysis.
