Difference between D L Sugars?
D and L are optical isomer of each other, or non superimposible mirror images. The convention uses Glyceraldhyde as the reference. In a fisher projection the OH of glyceraldehyde is on the right side ( more improtantly in the R configuration)in the D isomer and on the left side ( or the molecule is in the L configuration) in the L isomer. So for all other sugars it looks at the last chiral center for the molecule if the chiral center is R it is a D isomer if the last chiral center is in the S configuration it is an L isomer.
A carbon molecule that has a different arrangement of atoms is known as?
Is known as an Isomer. ==== Answer 2 An isomer is a variation of a compound with a different chemical structure. Carbon, by itself, of course is an element and not a compound. Thus I believe that this is known as an allotrope of carbon and not an isomer. Graphite and diamond are allotropes of carbon as the arrangement of the atoms differs.

Would a cis or trans isomer have a higher boiling point?
Cis-isomers generally have higher boiling points. The Latin prefix cis- means "on the same side." This generally means the molecule will have a greater concentration of either a dipole or dispersion forces on one side of the molecule as opposed to another. This will mean the greater probability of that molecule either being polar or having a temporary dipole, which means greater attraction between those molecules. In a trans-isomer, which means "across from," you will have a certain atom across the molecule from the other, which means often, those potential dipoles or dispersion forces will "cancel each other out," meaning less probability for attraction between molecules.
