Transformable H-bonds and conformation in compressed glucose.

Abstract

In response to external stimuli the α-d-glucose molecule extensively transforms its H-bonding pattern and conformation. High-pressure reverses the linear compressibility and changes the hierarchy of intermolecular interactions in crystalline α-d-glucose. At 5.40(2) GPa it undergoes an isostructural phase transition rearranging the OH···O hydrogen bonds… (More)
