Reactions of sugar

 Metal name Reaction with Sugar
Copper  Copper on heating with sugar  form a reddish-brown precipitate of copper (I) is also known as Fehling’s test. Transition metal
Iron Upon reaction with sugar it formed Maillard reaction products, which give baked goods their characteristic flavor and color. Transition metal
Chromium Chromium ions in a solution can also oxidize sugar molecules, resulting in the formation of a greenish-blue compound called chromium(III) oxide hydroxide. Transition metal
Nickel Nickel ions can form complexes with sugar molecules, resulting in the formation of greenish-brown precipitates. Transition metal
Silver Silver ions in a solution can reduce sugar molecules, resulting in the formation of a silver mirror on a glass surface. This reaction is called the Tollens’ test. Transition metal
Oxygen Sugar molecules can burn when heated and in the presence of oxygen, releasing carbon dioxide and water. This process is quite exothermic and produces a lot of energy. Non-metal Element
Chlorine In the presence of an acid catalyst, on reaction  with sugar molecules chlorine formed chlorinated sugar compounds. In the food sector, these substances are used as Sweeteners and as preservor. Non-metal Element
Sulfur Sulfuric acid hydrolyze sugar molecules, into monomers of glucose and fructose. Non-metal Element
Nitrogen Nitric acid can oxidise sugar molecules to produce nitrogen-containing substances, such as amino acids and nitro compounds. This method is used to make both explosives and pharmaceuticals. Non-metal Element
