4 Major Groups of Organic molecules
- Nucleic Acids
The most important rxn and why
- CO2 + H2O ->C6H12O6 + O2
- (this is glucose!)
What are monomers used for?
To make polymers
What are all polymers?
The rxn of monomers joining together to make polymers
The rxn of when polymers are broken
The ratio of a Carbohydrate
What are sugars, starches, and cellouse?
How many carbons does it take to make Glucose, Fructose, and Ribose?
What monomer forms a pentagon shape when placed in H2O?
Differences between Alpha and beta glucose
- beta has a hydroxyl group that is above the ring and is cellouse
- alpha has an -OH group that points downward and is starch
Sucrose and Maltose
What is Sucrose made of?
Fructose and Glucose
What is maltose made of?
a-glucose + a-glucose
What is maltose used for?
Shakes and Beer
How is sucrose and maltose made?
What are the gas makers of the carbs?
What is the shortest oligosaccharide?
What is raffinose made of?
Galact + Glucose + Fructose
What is glycogen used for?
How are starch, glycogen and cellulose different structurally?
- If starch is added to H2O it forms a helox ball
- Glycogen has branches
- and cellulose's structure has every other glucose is upside down
What is cellulose made of?
What does cellulose make when weaved together?
What uses fibrils and why?
- plants because of thier cell wall
- also why humans cannot digest it and produce gas~broccoli
Why does a potateo have more calories then lettuce?
Because lettuce has more cellulose making it harder for humans to break down hence getting less calories from it
Chemical make up of cellulose and starch
