Question #1

Small molecules, like those shown in Image #1, can be joined together in long chains. This process dramatically changes the properties of the united chain of molecules.

In which of the links below do you find a description of this concept and the nature of the chains and their properties?

Link-#462 Link-#473 Link-#481 Link-#489

Question #2

Image #2 shows a molecule that is used to create an important biological polymer with important roles in cell membranes, and energy storage.

In which of the links below is this property of these important biological polymers discussed and their nature explained?

Link-#359 Link-#337 Link-#341 Link-#346

Question #3

When scientists shone polarized light through a solution of the molecule shown in Image #3 their results were very inconsistent. What was going on and how did they explain their results.

In which of the links below is this phenomenon described and its meaning discussed?

Link-#288 Link-#221 Link-#203 Link-#254

Question #4

Image #4 shows a generic monomer found in a very important series of biological polymers used by cells. These polymers depend on both the composition of their chains (and momomers), as well as their shape for their biological roles and properties.

In which of the following links is there a description of these biological polymers and their structures?

Link-#122 Link-#111 Link-#172 Link-#193
