Originally mixed @[email protected] resulting from the @[email protected] of a @[email protected] to a non-acyl group RO– (which itself may be derived from a @[email protected] and chalcogen replacements thereof (RS–, RSe–).
The bond between the @[email protected] and the OR group is called a glycosidic bond. By extension, the terms N-glycosides and C-glycosides are used as class names for @[email protected] and for compounds having a @[email protected] attached to a hydrocarbyl group respectively.
These terms are misnomers and should not be used. The preferred terms are @[email protected] and C-glycosyl compounds, respectively.
