(a) Anomers - The pair of stereoisomers that differ in configuration only around C_{1} are called anomers.

For eg. \alpha -D-glucose\; \; \; and \; \; \; \; \beta -D-glucose


(b)     Essential Amino Acids - The amino acids which the human body can not synthesize are called essential amino acids For eg. Valine, tryptophan.etc,

(c) Denaturation of proteins - On heating or a treatment with mineral acids, the water-soluble globular proteins undergo coagulation or precipitation with the loss of biological activity to give water-insoluble fibrous proteins. The process is called denaturation and the coagulated protein thus formed is called denatured protein.
