Honey does not have it's own molecular formula. However, the predominant components are: The monosaccharides fructose and glucose and the disaccharide sucrose, the major component. The molecular formula for those sugars are: Sucrose; C12H22O11, Glucose; C6H12O6 and Fructose; C6H12O6. As you can see the formula for Glucose and Fructose are identical although the molecules are conformationally very different. In a case where there is confusion, I would certain use the international standardised nomenclature: Iernational Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry nomenclature, shortened to IUPAC. As such, the molecules follow the following nomenclature (name): Sucrose: Sucrose Glucose: 6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane -2,3,4,5-tetrol OR (2R,3R,4S,5R,6R)-6 -(hydroxymethyl)tetrahydro -2H-pyran-2,3,4,5-tetraol Fructose: (2R,3S,4R,5R)-2,5-Bis(hydroxymethyl)oxolane-2,3,4-triol Hope this helps.

What is molecular formula?

The molecular formula of a compound is the number of atoms of each element in one molecule. So in water (H2O), one molecule of water has 2 Hydrogen atoms and one oxygen.

What is the Empirical formula and Molecular formula?

empirical formula shows the simplest ratio between atoms present in molecule. For example, the empirical formula of glucose is CH2o [c6h12o6]. it shows simple ratio between

What is a molecular formula?

The molecular formula specifies the actual number of atoms of each element in a molecule.

What is the exact molecular formula of honey?

  Honey is a mixture of organic and some inorganic compounds, hence is not a pure substance and has no "one" or "exact" molecular formula. A typical honey breakdown of com

How do you get from emperical formula to molecular formula?

By determining the molecular mass, then dividing the molecular mass by the formula mass of the empirical formula to determine by what integer the subscripts in the empirical f

What is molecular weight of honey?

I think that honey is a mixture, so it doesn't really have its own molecular weight. Especially since there are two types of honey at least: regular honey and clove honey.

Can an empirical formula be a molecular formula?

Yes, the empirical formula is the most basic ratio of the elements in a compound, while the molecular formula is the ratio in a compound. For instance C5H10O could be both the
