HHOOHOOHThreoseCHOHOHHOCH 2 OHH For carbohydrates, the convention is to put the carbonyl group at the top for aldoses and closest to the topfor ketoses. The carbons are numbered from top to bottom.

If the hydroxyl group (or amino group for amino acids) ispointing to the right in the Fischer Projection, the sugar (or amino acid) is designated as D. If thehydroxyl group (or amino group for amino acids) is pointing to the left in the Fischer projection, the sugar(or amino acid) is designated as L. Most naturally occurring carbohydrates are of the D-configurationwhile most naturally occurring amino acids are L.

This hydroxy will become thering oxygen in the hemiacetal or hemiketal form of the carbohydrate. For D-glucose, it is the C5hydroxyl in the pyranose form; for D-ribose, it is the C4-hydroxyl for the furanose form.2.Manipulate the Fischer projection so this hydroxyl group is on the bottom.3.Draw the Haworth projection so that the ring oxygen is on the top. For pyranoses, draw the six-membered ring laying on it side with a oxygen at the upper right.4.Substituents on the right side of the Fischer projection will be on the bottom face of the Haworthprojection. Substituents on the left side of the Fischer projection will be on the top face of theHaworth projection.5.Remember that in the cyclic form, the C1-hydroxyl group (the anomeric center) can usually adopteither the up or down configuration.
