Mutarotation is the term given to the change in the specific rotation of plane polarized light, when it is passed through an aldohexose ( Monosaccharides with six carbon atoms and H-C=0 Group ). Mutarotation refers to the conversion of a pure anomer of a hemiacetal carbohydrate to an equilibrium mixture of two anomers. The specific rotation of a chemical compound [α]D is defined as the observed angle of optical rotation α when light of 589 nanometer wavelength (the sodium D line) is passed through a sample with a path length of 0. ...


As the name suggests, it is the change in rotation :


Muta - Change


Plane polarized light is obtained by passing ordinary light through a nicol prism.


During mutarotation, either α or β forms keep changing into the chain structure periodically to and fro.


Mutarotation also refers to the interconversion between the α and β anomers. However it must be converted to the open chain structure first before it can change conformation to the α or β position. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Anomeric carbon. ...
