The file DGlucose.pdf shows additional di-L-triplets which result from 
joining two L-triplets in a way that was overlooked in LTriplets.pdf. 
In the reference orientation, the three atoms of the L-triplet are 
colored orange, blue, and red. The di-L-triplets of L-triplets.pdf 
result from joins between two C-atoms in the orange position or one 
orange and one red. DGlucose.pdf shows those which result from joining 
red to red. Each of the di-L-triplets is being examined for making 
glycogen linkages. The results will be published shortly.

Each of the ways in which an H2O-group can join to each of the C-atoms 
of a di-triplet is shown for three of the di-L-triplets. There are 1600 
ways in which this can be accomplished with just one of the 
di-L-triplets. By comparision, the largest number of combinations for a 
sym-L-di-triplet is 640.

The file DGlucose.pdf can be downloaded from the "Files for sharing" 
page of the website
