  • Carbohydrates
    • cellulose
      • used as cell wall
      • Helps keep  plant rigid
    • Starch
      • Can be hydrolysed into smaller simpler sugars for energy
      • Used as a store of energy in plants
    • Glycogen
      • Primary storage of glucose in animals
    • Monosacharides
      • Glycosidic Bonds
        • Glycosidic bonds create Disacharides
        • Disacharides
          • 2 monosacharides joined together
          • Eg. Maltose (glucose+glucose)
        • Polysacharide
          • More than  2 monosacharides joined together
        • Condensation reaction
          • A 1-4 glycosidic bond
            • 2 OHs react forming H20
              • Leaves behind  an O between the 1-4 carbon  (a glycosidic  bond)
      • A simple sugar ie. Glucose
    • Disacharides
      • 2 monosacharides joined together
      • Eg. Maltose (glucose+glucose)
    • Polysacharide
      • More than  2 monosacharides joined together
