Give an example of a carbohydrate which exhibits lowest boiling point.

More the solute particles, the more in the elevation in boiling point. The lowest boiling point implies the least elevation in boiling point. This is possible when the number of solute particles is the least, i.e., in the case of glucose.

Glucose

The two main forms of carbohydrates are:

  1. sugars such as fructose, glucose, and lactose
  2. starches, which are found in foods such as starchy vegetables (like potatoes or corn), grains, rice, bread, and cereals

Glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream, and with the help of a hormone called insulin, it travels into the cells of the body, where it can be used for energy. Glucose can be used immediately or stored in the liver and muscles for later use. If all the glucose is not needed for energy, some are stored in fat cells and the liver as glycogen. As sugar moves from the blood to the cells, the blood glucose level returns to a normal between-meal range.
