9/8/11 Functions of CHOs Energy Storage: monosaccharides: glucose, fructose disaccharides: sucrose, maltose polysaccharides: starch, glycogen Structural molecules: Polysaccharides: cellulose, chitin
Background image of page 6
9/8/11 Basic structure of CHOs a result of three factors: 1. number of carbon atoms 2. location of the functional groups attached to each carbon 3. Orientation of functional groups around the carbons
