SBI4U Unit Test 1: March 3 – Chem Review and The Carbs Note

  • Electronegativity and type of intramolecular bond
  • Partial charges on polar covalent bonds
  • Polarity categories for biological covalent bonds: C-C, C-H, C-N, C-O, P-O, N-H, O-H
  • Functional Groups
  • VSEPR Theory
  • Bond Polarity
  • Understanding and Classifying Intermolecular Forces
  • Intermolecular Forces and physical properties – states of matter, boiling points, viscosity
  • anabolic vs catabolic reactions
  • carbohydrate terminology – monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, glycosidic linkages, triose, pentose, hexose, aldose versus ketose
  • isomers, structural isomers vs stereoisomers
  • alpha-glucose versus beta-glucose
  • glycosidic linkage encoding (e.g. alpha1-4 versus beta1-4)
  • polysaccharides – amylose, amylopectin, cellulose, chitin, glycogen
