Unformatted text preview: lipid macromolecule monomer peptide bond polymer polypeptide polysaccharide R group ribose saturated fatty acid starch structural isomer sugar triacylglycerol unsaturated fatty acid Isomers Molecules that that contain the same number of atoms of the same elements but that differ in the arrangement of atoms. Structural isomers differ in which atoms are bonded to each other. Geometric Isomers have different geometric configurations, as when atoms or groups of atoms have alternative arrangements on either side of a double bond or other rigid bond. Stereoisomers have the same atoms bonded to each other but differ in the way these atoms are arranged in space. Enantiomers are stereoisomers that are mirror images of each other. Note: Glucose and galactose are stereoisomers, but not enantiomers ....
