carbohydrate large macromolecule made of C, H, O that is used for quick energy in the body
monosaccharide monomer or subunit of carbohydrate, glucose is an example
lipid large molecule made of C, H and O that is the most efficient energy storing compound
protein large molecule made of C, H, O, N and S that is used to form structural materials and enzymes
amino acid monomer or subunit of protien
catalyst chemical that lowers the activation energy required for a reaction to occur. It takes part in the reaction but is not changed by the reaction.
nucleic acid large molecule made of C, H, O, N and P that stores cellular information
RNA single stand nucleic acid that has several jobs in the cell
DNA double strand nucleic acid that stores the cellular information
nucleotide monomer or subunit of nucleic acid
disaccharide two monosaccharides attached together
polysaccharide many monosaccharides attached together
starch polysaccharide used by plants to store chemical energy
cellulose polysaccharide used by plants to make structural materials like cell walls. It is the most abundant polysaccharide in the world.

phospholipid lipid molecule made up of glycerol, the two fatty acids and a phosphate that are attached to the glycerol
saturated fatty acid that does not contain any double bonds between its carbon atoms and has the maximum amount of hydrogen bound to the carbons. They are usually liquids at room temperature
unsaturated fatty acid that does contain double bonds between its carbon atoms and does not have the maximum amount of hydrogen bound to the carbons. They are usually solids at room temperature
