The final products of complete oxidation are CO 2 and H 2 0. Oxidation with bromine water or sodium hypoiodite can yield aldonic acids with aldoses but not with ketoses. Aldonic acids may lose water, the result of which is the formation of lactones. Gluconic acid yields a gamma (y)- and a delta (a)-lactone. Of these the y-lactone is the more stable compound.

Fructose yields sorbitol and mannitol, which have different configurations at the second carbon atom, hence they are epimers. The polyhydric alcohols or polyols are crystalline solids, the solutions of which range from strongly to mildly sweet. D-Sorbitol is found in a number of fruits, among which are the drupes (stone fruits) and pomes (apples and pears).
