Application

α-D-Glucose is used:
  • As a reducing agent in the preparation superparamagnetic ferrous oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles and silver nanocrystals.
  • As an additive for the formation of isoporous polystyrene-block-poly(4-vinylpyridine) (PS-b-P4VP) diblock copolymer membranes.
  • For glycosylation of cell-penetrating poly(disulfide)s (CPDs) with improved solubility to achieve multifunctional cellular uptake.
  • As a precursor in the synthesis of metal/carbon nanohybrids under hydrothermal conditions.
