Formation of Carbon from Carbohydrate  
Sulfuric acid has a very high affinity for water. It is shown to dehydrate a carbohydrate (sucrose) forming carbon. Sulfuric acid is reduced to sulfur dioxide, which bleaches a rose petal. In a second experiment, the sulfur dioxide reduces purple permanganate to nearly colorless manganese(II).

Synthesis of Anomeric Methyl Fructofuranosides and Their Separation on an Ion-exchange Resin  Erkki Nurminen, Päivi Poijärvi, Katja Koskua, and Jari Hovinen
Treatment of d-fructose with methanol in the presence of acid as a catalyst gives a mixture of methyl--d-fructopyranoside, methyl-a-D-fructofuranoside, and methyl--d- fructofuranoside, which are separated on an ion exchange column and characterized polarimetrically.

The Chemistry of Coffee  William F. Coleman
The paper Our Everyday Cup of Coffee: The Chemistry behind Its Magic by Marino Petracco provides a hearty blend of molecules for this month. The author deals with coffee at a number of different levels ranging from the economic and social to the still perplexing questions of flavor and aroma. The associated molecules demonstrate a range of structural features that students will benefit from examining in three dimensions.
