Carbohydrates monosaccharides : simple sugars – glucose, galactose, fructose disaccharide : double sugar – sucrose, lactose, maltose polysaccharide : many monosaccharides joined together glycogen : animal starch, polysacchardie composed of glucose subunits, a dehydration synthesis : reaction in which monosaccharides are bonded hydrolysis : reverse of dehydration synthesis – breaking of the covalent bonds – a water molecule provides the atoms needed to complete their structure – water molecule is split and resulting H atom is added to one of the free glucose molecules as the hydroxyl group is added to the other – occurs during digestion or using stored glycogen Lipids insoluble in polar solvents like water b/c consist of hydrocarbon chains &
