As we learnt in

Anomers -

The two forms of glucose,  \alpha - D glucose and  \beta - D glucose , are called anomers . Both are optically active and differ at  C_{1} position . 

- wherein

Specific rotation of  \alpha - D glucose is +111\cdot 5^{\circ} and of  \beta - D glucose is +19\cdot 5^{\circ}

 

 Anomers are optically active compounds.
