Editing for readability[edit]

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. 24.29.9.104 (talk) 17:24, 16 June 2013 (UTC)Ubiquitousnewt

cyanogenic or cyanogenetic[edit]

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)

Cyanogenic glycosides[edit]

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"

Nitrilosides[edit]

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)

Betalain[edit]

Where do the betalains fit into this classification? --EncycloPetey 15:28, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Nucleotide sugars?[edit]

Are these glycosides? Tim Vickers (talk) 17:11, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Citation[edit]

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 69.180.255.216 (talk) 23:55, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Glyco=Sugar, and Side=?[edit]

I think it should be mentioned. Ben-Natan (talk) 10:57, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
