disaccharide

Sugar formed from two monosaccharide units linked by a glycosidic bond. The trehalose type are formed from two non-reducing sugars, the maltose type from two reducing sugars.

Disaccharide

A disaccharide or biose is the carbohydrate formed when two monosaccharides undergo a condensation reaction which involves the elimination of a small molecule, such as water, from the functional groups only. Like monosaccharides, disaccharides form an aqueous solution when dissolved in water. Three common examples are sucrose, lactose, and maltose...
