1) "A test must not five a positive result due to the presence of some other substance (this would be a false positive). Explain, it terms of their solubility is different solvents and your knowledge f the emulsion test, why you do not see false positives due to:
-Monosachharides and disaccharides
-Starch
-Nucleic acid
-Protein"

2) Outline a method for a fully quantitative test for reducing sugars.

3) Suggest how you could distinguish a sample of glucose from a sample of maltose using Benedict's reagent. [Hint: maltose is a disaccharide reducing sugar.]

4) Suggest improvements to the method for the qualitative sugar tests.

(If you don't know the reducing/non-reducing sugar tests then don't worry about answering the 4th question.)

Thanks in advance, I just found out that this is due tomorrow and counts towards my practical pass/fail so I really, REALLY appreciate any help.
