  1. Carbohydrates ="Water Carbon"
    • Always one carbon plus one water(H2O): formula
    • CxH2xOx
    • For example, Glucose and Fructose (x=6) C6H12O6
    • Soluable in water.
  2. Lipids (Fats)
    More carbon than water; repel water (Hydrophobic)
  3. Proteins (Made up of amino acids)
    • Amino acids alwasy contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrigen.
    • some amino acids include sulfer.
  4. Nueceic Acids
    • Sugar backcone plus nitrogen base
    •   nitrogen base with one or two rings.
    •    - One-Ring pyrimidines (uracil, thymine, cytosine)
    •    -Two-rings purines (adenine, guanine)
    • Deoxyribose backebone:deoxyribonucleic acid(DNA )
    • Ribose backbone: ribosenucleic acid(RNA)
