1. Consider the following set of half reactions and their reduction potentials: NAD + + 2H + + 2e - NADH + H + E ° ’ = -0.32 V O 2 + 4H + + 4e- 2H 2 O E ° ’ = +0.82 V a. Write the net reaction for the oxidation of NADH and Reduction of molecular oxygen. b. Calculate the change in standard reduction potential, Δ E ° ’. c. Using the Nernst Equation, calculate Δ G ° ’ for this reaction. 2. Draw the structure of D-glucose in both a Fischer projection and Hayworth projection. Draw Fischer projections of D-mannose and D-galactose. What do you notice about the structures of these three sugars? How do they differ?
