January 15, 2008 Chemical reaction shows reaction Reaction------ products Equation for photosynthesis Major Organic Molecules (Having to do with life, carbon-based) Carbohydrates Lipids Nucleic acids Proteins **YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW FUNCTIONAL GROUPS OR STRUCTURES OF AMINO ACIDS.** Organic molecules are made of many single monomers Just like legos! A single unit of a molecule is called a monomer Two or more monomers bonded is called a polymer 1.Carbohydrates (CHO) carbon, hydrogen, oxygen Molecules: Sugars and Starches Glucose (monomer)- 6 carbon ring course Glycogen, cellulose, chitin (polymers) Glucose and Fructose are monomers bond to form sucrose the polymer The more complicated, the more energy required to create and also to use. Aka Cellulose. 2. Lipids Hydrophobic-afraid of water! More energy/gram than carbohydrates Includes fats and oils
