Dehydration Synthesis and Hydrolysis Flashcards | Quizlet

1) What is the difference between dehydration and hydrolysis?

2) What are the two categories of minerals?

3) What is a macronutrient?

4) What is a disaccharide?
Testing for Nutrients
Starch- Using iodine
-If iodine turns black/blue starch is present
Simple Sugars- Using Benedict's solution
- if it turns red, simple sugars are present
Fats/Lipids- using paper towel
-if liquid dries up, no fat is present

Protein- Nitric Acid and Sodium Hydroxide in a hot water bath
-if it turns yellow if protein is present

All these classes of macromolecules involve the process of dehydration synthesis and …

Carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids) are huge and made of thousands of atoms.

Polymers are broken down through the reverse process, hydrolysis.
A Condensation reaction is when two molecules are covalently bonded through the loss of a molecule.
More Specifically, these are
dehydration reactions
, as an H2O molecule is lost.
This is repeated over many times to connect many monomers into a polymer.
Enzymes are special macromolecules, that speed up this chemical reaction.

How does dehydration synthesis work in proteins

Though complex in nature, the formation of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats will not be possible without dehydration synthesis.

There are 2 main categories of nutrients....
Carbs: - Dissacharides
energy supply
2 simple sugars (Glu-Glu, Glu-Fru, Glu-Galactose)
Broken down in small intestine
- Starch
Long term energy storage
100's or 1000's of glucose linked together
Digestion starts in mouth (amylase) and continues in small intestine
Proteins: Tissue building enzymes
1000's of amino acids linked together
digestion starts in stomach and ends in small intestine
End up with individual amino acids

Fats/ Lipids: Important for cell membrane, insulation,
shock absorption
Glycerol and fatty acids linked together
Digested in small intestine
Saturated and Unsaturated
2) Minerals (2 categories)
-5% of our body weight
-essential for muscle contraction and blood clotting, protein synthesis
-body requires approximately 21 minerals

a) Macrominerals

-Mg, Ca, P, K, Na, Cl
-Fe, Mn, Cu, I, Co, Zn, F
Hydrolysis is the cleavage or breaking down of chemical bonds, when water is added.
