SO, LETS GET STARTED!
Monosaccharides in general serve as direct, quick sources of energy for living organisms during cellular respiration, they are building blocks of many polymers
Disaccharides – two monosaccharide molecules combine by dehydration synthesis to form disaccharides
Polysaccharides – many (tens to hundreds) units of monosaccharides combine by dehydration synthesis
Chitin – made up of some nitrogen containing monosaccharides. It is an important polysaccharide that provide the solid structure of arthropods and fungi.
Simple lipids are important as storage materials in all living things. They can store twice as much energy as polysaccharides can.
