Ch. 5 Macromolecules Polymer- a long molecule consisting of many similar or identical building blocks called monomers Condensation(dehydration) reaction – when two monomers are bonded to each other through the loss of a water molecule –OH from one and –H from another. Hydrolysis reaction – breaking of a polymer by adding water catalyst are enzymes. 5.2 Carbohydrates serve as fuel and building block 1. Sugars and polymers of sugars a. Monosaccharides- simplest/single sugars i. Molecular formula = generally some multiple form of CH 2 O b. Disaccharides – double sugars formed by condensation reaction and joined by a glycosidic bond. i. i.e maltose(gluc+gluc), sucrose(gluc+fruc), lactose(gluc+galact) c. Polysaccharides(macromolecules)- many monosacaccharides together i. Provide: storage material, provide sugar for cells, building block of structures that protect the cell/organism. ii.
