Glucose as an acid

Postby ian_haliburton_1f » Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:53 pm

Is glucose a Bronsted acid considering that it contains several hydrogen ions? If so, is it a weak acid or a strong acid? Does this have anything to do with the condition ketoacidosis?

I don't think it's either actually, it's a neutral organic compound

I agree with the person above. I don't think it is either.

I do not think it is either, as well.
