Originally mixed acetals
resulting from the attachment
of a glycosyl group
to a non-acyl group
(which itself may be derived from a saccharide
and chalcogen replacements thereof
The bond between the glycosyl group
and the OR group is called a glycosidic bond. By extension, the terms N
-glycosides and C
-glycosides are used as class names for glycosylamines
and for compounds having a glycosyl group
attached to a hydrocarbyl group respectively.
These terms are misnomers and should not be used. The preferred terms are glycosylamines
-glycosyl compounds, respectively.
