  • Carbohydrates
    • Glycogen
      • Main energy storage in animals
      • Long, branched
      • Alpha Glucose
      • Lots of branches so glucose released quickly
    • Starch
      • Amylose
        • Coiled due to glycosidic bonds so is compact makes it good for storage
      • Main energy storage in plants
    • Cellulose
      • Makes up cell walls in plants
      • Long, unbranched
      • Beta Glucose
      • Held together by hydrogen bonds to form microfibrils, provides structural support
    • Monosaccharides joined together by glycosidic bonds
    • Condensation     Reaction - releases a molecule of water
    • Hydrolysis Reaction - water reacts with glycosidic bond breaks it apart
