  • Six Carbon Monosaccharide
    343 words
    Carbohydrate Structure and Function Carbohydrates are molecules composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. They are polymers of the basic units called monnosaccarides. Dissaccharides are compound sugars, composed of two monosaccharides, (simple sugars) bonded together. Molecular Structure For example, two molecules of glucose can bond together to form the Disaccharide Maltose. Sucrose and Lactose are other common Disaccharides. Dissaccharides are formed through condensation reactions that result ...
  • High Levels Carbon Monoxide
    663 words
    The Invisible Killer Nearly three hundred people in the United States alone, die from the poisonous gas called carbon monoxide every year. Several thousand others go to hospital emergency rooms for treatment of this serious adverse dormant gas every year as well (CSPC 466). Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, latent gas produced by the incomplete burning of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels (CPSC 464). Appliances fueled with natural gas, coal, liquefied petroleum oil, kerosen...
  • Discovery Of A Molecular Solid Carbon
    1,067 words
    The Scientific Significance of Buckyballs by Chemistry Section General Chemistry Prof. Spring 199 Until the mid-1980's, elemental carbon was believed only to exhibit two main allotropic forms, diamond and graphite, both of which are covalent-network solids. However, Nobel Prize winning research conducted in the United States and Europe has confirmed the existence of a third previously unknown form of carbon- buckminsterfullerene (C 60). The discovery of buckminsterfullerene's, named after Richar...
  • Six Molecules Of Carbon Dioxide
    1,163 words
    I. Introduction A. The History of Carbon II. Occurrences in Nature A. Diamond B. Graphite C. Coal and Charcoal D. Amorphous Carbon. Carbon Compounds A. Inorganic B. Organic IV. The Carbon Cycle. Conclusion Carbon, an element discovered before history itself, is one of the most abundant elements in the universe. It can be found in the sun, the stars, comets, and the atmospheres of most planets. There are close to ten million known carbon compounds, many thousands of which are vital to the basis o...
  • Alpha D Glucose And Beta L Fructose
    4,253 words
    Glucose is one of the most essential and plentiful carbohydrates found on Earth. It is very important and crucial for many life functions, and procedures. Glucose also known as a aldohexose is a monosaccharide with 6 carbons and an aldehyde group. It has many forms and isomers and each one of them has its own importance and function. Glucose is known to be the most important carbohydrates partially because of its effects on functions of life. Glucose is essential for many causes such as photosyn...
  • Properties Of Different Forms Of Steel
    629 words
    Informative Speech - Metals Purpose: My purpose is to inform the audience of how different types of steel are formed by explaining the different mechanical properties of Iron and Carbon compositions. I. Introduction A. Have you ever noticed that some steel, such as a long bridge is able to bend and have slack, whereas other types of steel are more brittle yet much harder, such as a propeller. If a bridge were more brittle, a strong perpendicular wind could easily break it in half, and a soft pro...
  • Graphite And Carbon Graphite Uses Of Graphite
    1,280 words
    Physical Properties of Graphite and Carbon Graphite Graphite is soft and black and the stable form of carbon. The usual form of graphite (hexagonal graphite) has hexagon sheets arranged in parallel layers. The carbon atoms are found at the corners of the regular and fused hexagons and has three neighbouring carbon atoms, so that the carbon forms a 2-dimensional hexagon net. The covalent bonding between the sheets are weak and are easily broken as shown above in the diagram thus graphite is a goo...
