I. Review • The ability of carbohydrates to form numerous hydrogen bonds makes them water soluble • Biological molecules bind to each other when they have both shape complementarity and an appropriate network of hydrogen bonds • Complex carbohydrates are present on cell surfaces, and can be quite distinct in certain cases, such as in cancer cells • Synthetic versions of these carbohydrates can be used to develop vaccines that cause the immune system to attack cancer cells, providing a potentially very selective and benign form of cancer therapy • Carboxylic acids have pKa values of <5 because their conjugate bases can delocalize negative charge over two electronegative oxygen atoms • Several carboxylic acids are known by their common names to a much greater extent than by their systematic names • The acidity of carboxylic acids is influenced by the substituents on the carbon that is bonded to the carbonyl group, with electron withdrawing groups enhancing acidity

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
