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

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
