Experimental and Theoretical Investigations of Terahertz Spectra of the Structural Isomers: Mannose and Galactose

Figure 1

(a) Atom labeling scheme for mannose in the form of zwitterion and (b) molecular packing in the unit cell. Atom colors: oxygen, red; carbon, grey; and hydrogen, white. Only the mannose molecule is depicted in the figure, for the reason that the labeling schemes for mannose and galactose are the same as these molecules are structurally equivalent, differing only in the spatial position of the four chiral carbons.
