Spectral data are presented showing that the β form of glucose can be changed to the α form while in the solid phase, but this is not reversible. The existence of β-D-glucose hydrate is postulated. Anomer transformation occurs only with the hydrated sugar Rigorous drying of infrared-quality KBr was found unnecessary for use with the sugars.
