On one lecture slide, a structure of Maltose (alpha-beta) and Cellobiose (beta-beta) are shown. Are there special terms for alpha-alpha linkages and beta-alpha linkages?


No, there's no special term; instead, we have different names for the disaccharides themselves (maltose vs. cellobiose in this case) to distinguish one from another.
