Unformatted text preview: all nucleotides have the same basic structure Nucleic Acids: are polymers of nucleotides bonded together through condensation reactions. Special Nucleotide: ATP Classes of Organic Molecules Overview: Similarities : large molecules are polymers of smaller subunits the reactions which join these monomers are condensation reactions the reactions which breakdown the polymers are hydrolysis reactions Differences: Carbohydrates and lipids the polymers do not contain any information in the sequence of components, they contain large amounts of energy Proteins and Nucleic acids on the other hand the sequence of components is very important and does contain information, but they contain much less energy...
