1 Biology - Kevin Dees Biology Chapter 5 Biological macromolecules Biology - Kevin Dees Small molecules (like water and NaCl) have certain properties that arise from the bonds which hold atoms together in a particular arrangement. Many of the molecules that compose the cells in a living thing are huge and are often termed macromolecules. very large molecules - some proteins for examples contain thousands of covalently bonded carbon atoms 2 Biology - Kevin Dees There are four categories of biological macromolecules: 1. Carbohydrates * 2. Lipids 3. Proteins* 4. Nucleic Acids* * these three categories are composed of molecules that are formed as polymers Biology - Kevin Dees Polymers . Polymers are long molecules consisting of many similar or identical building blocks linked by covalent bonds. . These basic units (or building blocks) are known as monomers. . As we will see, the monomers of each of the three different macromolecules are different , but the che...
