Special Properties of Water due to H- bonding . 1. It’s the UNIVERSAL SOLVENT 2. COHESIVE: water molecules “stick together”. This creates what’s called surface tension on bodies of liquid water. 3. High SPECIFIC HEAT; This means it gains and loses heat S. .L. .O. .W. .L. .Y.

Condensation Reactions Form polymers from subunits Enzymes remove -OH from one molecule, H from another, form bond between two molecules Discarded atoms can join to form water

Hydrolysis A type of cleavage reaction Breaks polymers into smaller units Enzymes split molecules into two or more parts An -OH group and an H atom derived from water are attached at exposed sites

Now lets build some molecules! Monomers are smaller molecules, which are “building blocks” for polymers, which are larger molecules. Dehydration synthesis The formation of large polymers by the removal of water. Hydrolysis The breaking up of a larger polymer, into monomers, by splitting up water. This replaces the missing atoms.

Where does this occur? In many places in your body. Hydrolysis Begins in your mouth, happens in your stomach and intestinal tract, and finishes up in your cells. Think of how molecules are broken up, and where. Dehydration synthesis Usually occurs in your cells, because this is where most of your molecules are made.
