Solution

The correct option is C

Anomers


  • Enantiomers: Enantiomers are pairs of compounds with exactly the same connectivity but opposite three-dimensional shapes. Enantiomers are mirror images of each other and are non-superimposable.

Example:

  • Tautomers: Tautomers are structural isomers of chemical compounds that are interconvertible. The chemical reaction interconverting these two isomers is called tautomerization.

Example:

  • Anomers: Anomers are the stereoisomers that differ in only the anomeric carbon, the carbon that bears the aldehyde or ketone functional group.

Example:

  • Epimers: Epimers are the stereoisomers that differ in configuration at any single asymmetric carbon atom.

  • Alpha D glucose and beta D glucose differ are the structural isomers that differ in only at the carbon that bears the aldehyde functional group. Hence, these are anomers.
  • So, the correct option is (C).
