Editing for readability
This article is hard to read and contains factual inaccuracies. Glycosides are defined as compounds with glycosidic bonds - the "moiety"...which is a terrible, terrible term to spring on a reader in a definition for the public, by the way...can, in fact, be another carbohydrate. I'm fixing stuff now. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:24, 16 June 2013 (UTC)Ubiquitousnewt
cyanogenic or cyanogenetic
hmm, I just added cyanogenic glycosides, but then I found cyanogenic glycosides. I think these are the same thing, but I don't know which heading should it have (IANA-Chemist). Maybe someone can clear this up, or leave as is if nothing new is needed. Smmurphy(Talk) 06:11, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
- I think cyanogenic is the correct term; cyanogenetic is a misnomer for the same thing. However, these compounds do not necessarily have hydrogen cyanide as the aglycone. I fixed it. AxelBoldt 18:06, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Typo that needs to be cleared up in the last paragraph on the page:
Cyanogenic glycosides "In this case, the aglycone is a contains a cyanide group"

In the paragraph : "In this case, the aglycone is a contains a cyanide group"
The word "cyanide" should be replaced by "nitrile", because these compounds do not contain the cyanide ion (CN-) but the nitrile group (R-CN) instead. These are completely different things, as nitrile compounds being nowhere near as toxic as most cyanide-containing ionic compounds. Dr.Rezaf 13:53, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Steroidal glycosides or cardiac glycosides, I need a sitation for the information given, and alseo a link or two for info on medicinal uses for steroidal glycosides. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:55, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
