The Energy from glucose is obtained from the oxidation reaction

C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O

How would a similar reaction look for Sucrose? I am trying to find an equation about how the body uses a compound, in this case sucrose. I'm just not sure how different that would be. Any help?

  • Chemistry -

    Sucrose hydrolyzes in aqueous solution (sucrose is a disaccharide) with invertase to form glucose and fructose by the body. Then the glucose can be oxidized and used for energy.
