Condensation Reactions + Covalent Bonds (Please Help with frustrating question) - Thank you! (Sep/20/2008 )
Which of the following macromolecules are held together by covalent bonds between monomers and are synthesized through condensation reactions? Choose all correct answers.
This is what I think:
-Nucleic acids form condensations reactions through phosphodiester linkages. Would this be a type of covalent bond?
-Triglycerides definitely form covalent bonds and I think they form through condensation reactions.
-Carbohydrates: I definitely think they form condensation reactions though covalent bonds.
-Proteins: When they form peptide bond, I think they form condensation reaction.
So what do you all think? Would it be all of them? Any help on which would not be would be hugely appreciated.
You misread the question they are asking what compounds are synthesised through condensation reactions, not which ones perform condensation reactions.
Which ones are considered macromolecules?
