Basic chemistry notes
Basic Chemistry Notes

  • Everyting is made up of elements. The periodic table lists and organizes these elements according to their composition

  • Elements are made up of atoms

  • All atoms are made of the following:

    • protons=positively charged, found in nucleus

    • neutrons=NO charge, found in nucleus

    • electrons=negatively charged, orbit the nucleus

Atomic parts
Atomic Parts

  • Nucleus-determines the mass of the atom (electron mass is negligible).

  • Atomic number=number of protons

  • Atomic Mass (Mass number)=number of protons+number of neutrons

  • Electron cloud is composed of layers (like onion skin). These are called Energy levels or shells.

  • Shell 1=2 electrons, shell 2=8 electrons, shell 3=18 electrons

Changes to atoms
Changes to Atoms

  • “Elemental” Atoms are found on the periodic table, but these are actually the most common isotopes of the atoms

  • Isotope-”iso”=same, same element, different numbers of neutrons.

    • Half-life of radioisotopes=amount of time it takes for half of a sample to decay (see overhead)

  • Ion=charged particles which have gained or lost electrons

Atomic stability
Atomic Stability

  • Octet rule: Atoms need 8 electrons or a full outer shell to be stable

  • Atoms that don’t have the octet tend to be very reactive

  • The number or electrons needed to get the octet is known as the atom’s valence, which tells us the number of bonds the atom will make (atoms pick up, release, or share electrons when bonding)

Solutions and ph
Solutions and pH

  • Solution-one thing distributed evenly in another (must use physical properties to separate them)

  • Water dissociation (see overhead)

    • causes H+ and OH- ions

    • H+ means the solution is acidic

    • OH-means the solution is basic

  • pH scale measures how acidic or basic a solution is

    • 0-6.99=acidic, 0 being the most acidic

    • 7=neutral

    • 7.1-14=basic, 14 being the most basic

Water s properties
Water’s Properties

  • Polarity=slightly positive and negative ends which makes it a good solvent for other polar things

  • This also allows water to make Hydrogen bonds (weak attractive forces between Hydrogens in different molecules)

  • This gives water special properties

    • Capillary action

    • Stabilizing temperature

    • Expanding when it freezes

Biochemistry notes
Biochemistry notes

  • Carbon-the backbone for organic molecules

    • organic is carbon-based chemistry

    • biochemistry is the organic chemistry of living things

    • can form single (flexible, -ane), double (semi-flexible, -ene), or triple bonds (rigid, -yne)

  • Biochemicals are chains of smaller molecules or subunits


  • Sugars (end in -ose) and Starches

  • Sugars tend to be simple chains or rings of carbons, while starches are long, branching chains of sugars.

  • Sugars can be simple (single subunit), or more complex (multiple subunits)

  • Sugars are ready, useable energy

  • Starches are short-term energy storage molecules (glycogen in animals, cellulose in plants)

  • All carbohydrates have the formula CxH2xOx


  • Fats, Waxes, and Oils

  • Made up of fatty acids

  • These are the long-term energy storage molecules.

  • Typical structures include triglycerides (3 fatty acids with a glycerol backbone)

  • Still contain C and H, but have far less O than carbohydrates

  • Saturation-all of the valence electrons in carbon are bonded with a hydrogen (full of hydrogens=single bonded)

  • Mono and polyunsaturated-double and triple bonded carbons (where do you see these words commonly?)

Nucleic acids
Nucleic Acids

  • Chains of nucleotides

  • Nucleotides are composed of

    • a phosphate

    • a sugar (deoxyribose in DNA, ribose in RNA)

    • a nitrogenous base (adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine, uracil)

  • The order of the nucleotides contains the code for building the components of living things


  • Are chains of amino acids

  • Order of amino acids is important, as this determines the shape of the molecule.

  • Shape determines how the protein works-particularly w/ enzymes


  • Enzymes Lower the activation energy of reactions (they help the reaction begin quickly)

  • These are usually proteins, which means that their shape is important. In fact, the shape makes them only capable of interacting with specific substrates

  • Substrate=that which is put together or broken down by enzymes

  • Enzymes are NOT consumed by the reactions they catalyze (speed up)

Enzymes continued
Enzymes, Continued

  • Several things control and enzyme’s function

    • Concentration of substrates or enzymes

    • pH

    • Temperature

  • Enzymes changing shape because of temperature or pH changes=denaturing
