The file LTriplets.pdf shows how one L-triplet can join with an
identical L-triplet to form a di-L-triplet. Twelve distinct
orientations of an L-triplet enable the formation of thirteen
di-L-triplets. Two are separate orientations of the same assembly,
three cannot accommodate an O-atom on each of its C-atoms, and two
cannot accommodate an H2O-group on each of its C-atoms. The seven
remaining di-L-triplets can accommodate an H2O-group on each of its
C-atoms. The backbone of D-glucose is among them.
