Fructose in presence of HIO4 gives ----> xHCOOH + yHCHO + CO
Ratio of x and y is ?

Dear Student,

x= 3 and y = 1, the balance reaction scheme for the given condition is expressed below,

C6H12O65HIO43HCOOH + HCHO + CO2
Hence under the presence of HIOthree equivalent formic acid and one equivalent of formaldehyde is produced from the reaction scheme.

Regards.
