Best Answer

The sucrose does not react with Fehling's reagent. Sucrose is a disaccharide of glucose and fructose. Most disaccharides are reducing sugars, sucrose is a notable exception, for it is a non-reducing sugar. The anomeric carbon of glucose is involved in the glucose- fructose bond and hence is not free to form the aldehyde in solution.
