carbon containing

molecules that coontain carbon organic molecules
what are the four groups of organic molecules carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids
molecules used for energy, storage of energy and cellular structures carbohydrates
carbohydrates are composed of atoms of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen,
the simplist (simple sugar) form of carbohydrate is called monosaccharide
two monosaccharides joined together in a synthesis reaction is called a disaccharide
the combination of two or more simple materials to form one or more complex materisla by removing water dehydration synthesis
breaks down more complex materials into simpler ones by adding water hydrolysis
a combination of many monosaccharides joined together by dehydration synthesis polysaccharides
used by the body for energy and are stored in fat for future energy needs lipids
four classes of lipids neutral fats, phospholipids, steriods, eicosanoids
lipids are composed of carbon,hydrogen, oxygen and sometimes phosphorous
a lipid composed of three fatty acids and a glycerol neutral fat or triglyceride
a chain of carbon atoms attached to each carbon by a single or double bonds fatty acid
when all the bonds in the hydrcarbon chain fats that have single bonds so as many hydrogen atoms as possible are attached to the carbon. found mainly in animal fats. saturated fatty acid
fats that have some double bonds between carbon and and hydrogen atoms. found mainly in plants unsaturated fatty acid
a macro molecule composed of proteins and lipids lipoprotein
composed of two fatty acids attached to glycerol and a phosphate group phospholipids
