IAL Edexcel Biology - Carbohydrates
Topic 1 Molecules Transport and Health
1.2(i) Know the difference between monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides, including glycogen and starch (amylose and amylopectin)
1.2(ii) Be able to relate the structures of monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides to their roles in providing and storing energy
1.4 Know how monosaccharides (glucose, fructose and galactose) join together to form disaccharides (maltose, sucrose and lactose) and polysaccharides (glycogen, amylose and amylopectin) through condensation reactions forming glycosidic bonds, and how these can be split through hydrolysis reactions
👇Two important polysaccharides to remember for IAL Edexcel Biology 👇
Be sure you understand the structure of a molecule to its function
Condensation and hydrolysis reactions
