  • 2.2 Carbohydrates Monosaccharides
    • Monomers and Polymers
      • Monomers are the individual building blocks of larger Polymers.
        • Glucose
        • Glycerol and Fatty Acids.
        • Amino Acids
      • Polymers are long chains of monomers fused together by condensation reactions.
        • Proteins
        • Lipids
        • Carbohydrates
    • Reducing Sugars
      • C   H   O
      • Test for reducing sugars
        • 1. make sure the sample is a liquid (naturally or grind it up in water.
          • 2. Add an equal amount of Benedict's solution.
            • 3. Heat in a water bath.
              • 4. Observe colour change.
                • None = Blue
                • Low = Yellow
                • Very Low = Green
                • Medium = Red
                • High = Red
