    Anyone here good at biology, and especially glucose? I hope so!

    We've been studying glucose and I need to find out what the beta glucose looks when it's joined in a chain.

    I know what alpha glucose looks like and what it looks like in a chain - pretty much explains it here: http://www.biotopics.co.uk/as/glucose2.html

    But I can't find out about beta glucose! I know the singular looks identical to the alpha, only difference is the -H and -OH on the right hand side are the other way around.

    I can't find it anywhere, can anyone help please? :(
