The file DGlucose.pdf shows additional di-L-triplets which result from
joining two L-triplets in a way that was overlooked in LTriplets.pdf.
In the reference orientation, the three atoms of the L-triplet are
colored orange, blue, and red. The di-L-triplets of L-triplets.pdf
result from joins between two C-atoms in the orange position or one
orange and one red. DGlucose.pdf shows those which result from joining
red to red. Each of the di-L-triplets is being examined for making
glycogen linkages. The results will be published shortly.
Each of the ways in which an H2O-group can join to each of the C-atoms
of a di-triplet is shown for three of the di-L-triplets. There are 1600
ways in which this can be accomplished with just one of the
di-L-triplets. By comparision, the largest number of combinations for a
sym-L-di-triplet is 640.
