. What is a glycosidic linkage

Best Answer


 The covalent bond  which joins  the hemiacetal group of a saccharide  and hydroxyl group of

another molecule(may or may not be saccharide ) is called glycosidic Bond. 

The common atom which joins the two groups  can be oxygen(O), Nitrogen(N) and Sulfur(S) 

so the name of the bond  becomes O-glycosidic Bond and N-glycosidic Bond and S- glycosidic Bond respectively. 

Final Answer:-

 There is the linkage between the hemiacetal group of the saccharide and some other group and this link is called glycosidic linkage.
