Glycosides are a class of organic compounds in which a sugar molecule is bound to a non-sugar molecule,
known as an aglycone or genin. The sugar component can be a single sugar (monosaccharide) or a chain of sugars
(oligosaccharide), and the non-sugar component can be any other molecule, often a lipid or a protein.
This bond between the sugar and non-sugar component is known as a glycosidic bond.
Glycosides are prevalent in nature and are found in a wide range of plants. They serve a variety of functions
depending on their structure and the specific plant in which they are found. For instance, they can act as a form of energy
storage, be involved in plant defense, or play a role in pigmentation.
