Unformatted text preview: Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry Fourth Edition Chapter 2: Water Copyright 2004 by W. H. Freeman & Company David L. Nelson and Michael M. Cox Why is Water Special? Hydrogen Bonds Requirements H bound to F, O or N F not physiologically relevant. Electron pair donor H-Bonds H-Bond = 23 kJ/mol OH bond = 470 kJ/mol CH bond = 348 kJ/mol Van der Walls (London) forces ~4 kJ/mol H-Bonds and Boiling Points Why do H-bonds influence the boiling point of a solution? What do you predict? Does Geometry Influence H-Bonds? Why would geometry influence bond strength? What would cause altered geometries? H atom is in a direct line between two negatively charged atoms Biological Examples Ice Solid water floats or is less dense than the liquid. Why? Is this important to biology? Polar vs. Non-Polar Hydrophobic water fearing Hydrophilic water living Why do molecules dissolve in water ?water ?...
