  1. Like a train made up of a chain of cars, a _____ is made of identical building blocks called _____
    linked by ______ _____
    polymer----monomers----covalent bonds
  2. All polymers are assembled by _____ ___ and broken down by _______
    dehydration rxns-----hydrolysis
  3. (simple sugars) are the monomers from which more complex carbs are built
    Monosaccharides
  4. 2 monosaccharides joined by a covalent bond
    Disaccharide
  5. made up of many monomer building blocks
    Polysaccharides
  6. The formula of Glucose
    C6H12O6
  7. is a simple aldosic monosaccharide found in plants. It is one of the three dietary monosaccharides, along with fructose and galactose, that are absorbed directly into the bloodstream during digestion
    Glucose
  8. are an important class of biological polymers. Their function in living organisms is usually either structure- or storage-related.
    Polysaccharides
  9. a long molecule consisting of many similar or identical monomers linked together by covalent bond
    Polymer
  10. A type of strong chemical bond in which two atoms share one or more pairs of valence electrons
    Covalent bond
  11. An extensively branched glucose storage polysaccharide found in the liver and muscle of animals; the animal equivalent of starch.
    Glycogen
  12. A polymer of may monosaccharaides, formed by dehydration reactions.
    polysaccharides
  13. The simplest carbohydrate, active alone or serving as a monomer for disaccharides and polysaccharides. Also known as simple sugars, monosaccharaides have molecular formulas that are generally some multiple of CH2O.
    monosaccharide
  14. A structural polysaccharide, consisting of amino sugar monomers, found in many fungal cell walls and in the exoskeletons of all arthropods.
    chitin
