Organic molecules are any molecules that contain carbon and hydrogen
Carbohydrates
Monomer
Elements involved
Carbon
Hydrogen
Oxygen
Function
Primarily source of energy
Polymer
OH= Oxygen and Hydrogen
C= Carbon
Lipids
Elements
Carbon Oxygen Hydrogen
Glycerol and fatty acids are 2 types of Lipid monomers
Glycerol
Example of lipids
Steroids
Fats
Oils
Phospholipids
Lipids store the energy for long time
Fatty acids
Proteins
Monomer
Element Involved
Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen Nitrogen
Examples of protein polymers
All meats
Function
Make up your cells. Enzymes are proteins
H= Hydrogen
O= Oxygen
C= Carbon
N= Nirtogen
Nucleic Acids
Elements Involved
carbon hydrogen oxygen nitrogen phosphorus
4 Different Nucleic Acid Monomers
adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) and thymine (T).
Function of Nucleic Acids
To store and express genetic information
Monomer
O=Oxygen
C=Carbon
H=Hydrogen
P=Phosphorus
Dehydration Synthesis and Hydrolysis
Difference between monomer and polymers
Monomers are small molecule and Polymers are larger molecule
Chemical reaction that forms polymers
The chemical reaction that forms polymers is polymerization.
Chemical reaction that breaks apart polymers into monomers
The chemical reaction that breaks polymers into monomers is hydrolysis reactions
