Table Sugar can react with water to form 2 other compounds, glucose & fructose. But, when you add sugar to a glass of water the reaction is very slow - WHY? What would it need to speed it up?

    A catalyst would do it, in particular, the enzyme invertase

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "red blood cell" to get this source:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_blood_cell

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    Thanks for asking. I hope this helps.
