High School Chemistry Strand 5: Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry
The bonding characteristics of carbon allow the formation of many different organic molecules or varied sizes, shapes and chemical properties, and provide the biochemical basis of life.
5a. Large molecules (polymers), such as proteins, nucleic acids and starch, are formed by repetitive combinations of organic monomers.
5b. The bonding characteristics of carbon result in the formation of a large variety of structures, ranging from simple hydrocarbons to complex biological molecules and synthetic polymers.
5c. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins.
