Most biological molecules are carbon based Versatility: forms 4 covalent bonds Organic molecules w/ c&h mostly made by living things Single bonds 1. Carbon CH4 2. Carbon chain C2H6 3. Carbon chain C3H8 4. Carbon chain Double bonds 1. C4h8 Rings 1. Cyclohxane Table 3.1 How are organic molecules synthesized? Organic molecules in all living organism share two similarities o 1. Use same functional groups o 2. Formed by the modular approach Stick subunits together like cars in a train Monomer 1 box dimer 2 boxes polymer 6 boxes Dehydration/hydrolysis o dehydration synthesis o hydrolysis

which of the following best summarizes the relationship between dehydration and hydrolysis? o dehydration reactions assyble polymers and hydrolysis breaks them down what are carbohydrates o composisiton literally carbon + water (CH20)n Ex- gluose C6H12O6 o Function Energy Structure Figure 3.1 o saccharides Monosaccharide Mono= 1 sacchirdide= sugar (1 sugar)
