Write a reaction which shows that all the atoms in glucose are linked in a straight chain.


Solution

$$(\underset{\!\!\!\!\!\!\!CH_2OH}{\underset{|}{\overset{CHO\!\!\!\!\!\!\!}{\overset{|}{C}}}HOH)_4}+HI \xrightarrow{\Delta}$$ $$CH_3-CH_2-CH_2-CH_2-CH_2-CH_3$$
                                                                                n-hexane

The reaction of glucose with HI gives n-hexane which shows that all the atoms in glucose are linked in a straight chain.
