MODULE 1: Carbohydrate Chemistry3 video lessons (27m 33s )
In this eLearning module, you will learn about Carbohydrates, Carbohydrates are the most abundant biomolecules on earth. Oxidation of carbohydrates is the central energy-yielding pathway in most non-photosynthetic cells. Carbohydrates are one of the three macronutrients in the human diet, along with protein and fat.
Stereoisomerism of molecules shapes an indispensable concept in molecular science. Stereoisomers are isomers that have the same composition but that differ in the orientation of those parts in space.Reference carbon atoms of sugars. Stereoisomers are molecules that have the same molecular formula and differ only in how their atoms are arranged in three-dimensional space.
In this eLearning module, you will learn about Oligosaccharides & Polysaccharides. Oligosaccharides and polysaccharides are carbohydrates. Both oligosaccharides and polysaccharides are made of simple sugar molecules called monosaccharides. Oligosaccharides are short chains of sugars strung together to make molecules with new functions. Polysaccharides are simply larger chains of sugars than oligosaccharides.
