Glucose (Glc), a simple sugar (monosaccharide) also known as grape sugar, blood sugar, or corn sugar, is an important carbohydrate in biology. Cells use it as a source of energy and metabolic intermediate. Glucose is one of the main products of photosynthesis and starts cellular respiration in both prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea) and eukaryotes (animals, plants, fungi, and protists). Starch and cellulose are complex sugars and polymers of glucose.

The glucose molecule exists in two mirror-image (stereoisomer) forms, only one of which, the right-handed form (D-glucose), plays a major role in biology. D-glucose is often referred to as dextrose monohydrate, or, especially in the food industry, simply dextrose (from dextrorotatory glucose , turning polarized light to the right; from Latin dexter, 'right' ). This article deals with the D-form of glucose. The mirror-image of the molecule, L-glucose, cannot be metabolized by cells in the biochemical process known as glycolysis.
