e. H bonds then covalent bonds then Van der Waals forces then ionic bonds. 8. All cells use the left-handed enantiomers of amino acids in making polypeptides. This is because: a. the chemistry of the alpha carbon does not allow the formation of a right-handed enantiomer of amino acids. b. the enzymes used in biochemical reactions and ribosome used for making polypeptides have structures which allow only the left-handed version to bind to them. c. the right-handed enantiomers of amino acids have a greater amount of free energy in their chemical bonds. d. the right-handed amino acids are less soluble in water. e. the left-handed amino acids do not increase the pH of water but the right-handed amino acids do increase the pH of water when they are dissolved. 9.
