simply because they are carbohydrates, all carbohydrates produces positive result in molisch's test
All carbohydrates i.e. monosacchardes, dissacharides and polysaccharides are dehydrated (lose water) by a dehydrating agent (e.g. Sulphuric acid) they form aldehydes known as furfurral. The furfurral reacts with a component known as 1- naphthol present in Molisch reagent resulting in a reddish violet colour forming between the Reagent and the previous mixture of the carbohydrate and thedehydrating agent. It is important to note that the reaction is more rapid with simple sugars or monosaccharides
I think it is beter to discuss the principle of this test first.
Any monosaccharide can answer this test (gives positive result).
This happens through dehydration by sulfuric acid (H2so4); this dehydration results in production of furfural or one of its derivatives depending on the type of monosaccharide whether it's hexose ( gives 5-hydroxymethylfurfural) or pentose (gives furfural). Then this furfural reactes with 2 molecules of phenol (usually α-naphthol, though other phenols (e.g. resorcinol, thymol). The product of this reaction has red or purple colored (the positive ).
Now regarding your question if the positive means the presence of carbs (sugars). The answer is that it can be a sugar or [furfural (not a sugar or carbs)]. Actually I am not sure if there is another compund also gives positive result.
N.B. Disaccharide and polysaccharides must be hydrolyzed using HCl to produce monosaccharides before giving the result. If you get any negative result with Molisch, you can proceed to hydrolysis step then redo the test. if it still negative the substance you test is not a sugar. On the other hand, if it turns to positIve, that means it was either disaccharide or polysaccharide.
To conclude this, I can tell you that the negative result exclude the presence of the carbohydrates but positive can't give any evidence that the substance give the result is carbohydrate. In other words, a negative result by this reaction is a very good evidence of the absence of carbohydrates, but a positive test is indication to the probable presence of carbohydrate.
I think further tests must be done.
yes, with very few exceptions a positive Molisch's test confirms the presence of carbohydrates.
Both maltose aswell as lactose are disaccharides, where maltose is made up of two glucose units, whereas lactose is made up of 1 unit of glucose and 1 unit of galactose. Barfoed's test answers only for mono and disaccharides. Presence of red precipitate would indicate a positive result for monosaccharides. Thus doing Barfoed's test does not distinguish between maltose and galactose since both are disaccharides.
After your ovulation takes place, you'll need to wait at least 10 days to take a pregnancy test and, hopefully, get positive results. Good luck!
The substances that are test positive with Ames test may or may not be carcinogenic for humans. Similarly, some substances that cause cancer in laboratory animals do not give a positive result Ames test. It is not possible to decide the carcinogenicity of any substances only depending on the Ames test.
If it is mixed well.
Starch digestion (hydrolysis) is incomplete
Yes they will. Disaccharides will give a positive result much quicker than polysaccharides, and it also depends on the conditions because they need to be dehydrated by an agent such as concentrated H2SO4 and it so happens that it is much easier to do so on a disaccharide than it is on the polysaccharide
The Benedict test is useful for monosaccharides and disaccharides.
Because it is a carbohydrates and molisch test will be positive in the presence of carbohydrates
A positive Molisch's test result indicates the presence of carbohydrates.
all carbohydrates show positive result to Molisch test. this is because Molisch test is used to distinguish carbohydrates from other organic compound.
Glycoproteins give positive results for Molisch's test. This answer is true because Molisch test was a test for sugar.
Why poly saccaride are test
See this link.
what is the name of result from molisch test
Molisch Test and iodine.
all carbohydrates will give a positive visible result
Molisch's test is used to detect carbohydrates. Egg albumen is free from carbohydrates.
