forces acting on biological molecules NonCovalent a Ionic interactions between oppositely charged ions strongest non covalent b Van der Waals Forces ex Hbonding dipolar interactions 2 Hvdroohobic effect the exclusion of nonpolar groups from polar surroundings so as to maximize the entropy of water molecules 3 Amphiphilic substances can form micelles or bilayers so as to shield their hydrophobic groups while exposing their hydrophilic groups to water by hydrophobic effect 4 Osmosis process by which water diffuses across permeable membranes from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration 5 Dialysis solutes diffuse across a semipermeable membrane from regions of higher concentration to regions of lower concentration 6 Van der Waals envelooe or surface the approximate boundary or the perimeter of a molecule as demarcated by the outer boundary of the surrounding cloud of electrons 7 Van der Waals radius the distance from the center of the molecule to the Van der Waals envelope 8 Van der Waals radius of water 14A39 two water molecules cannot get closer to each other than 2r distance from the center of one molecule to the center of the other 9 Dipoles charge separation 10 Van der Waals forces interactions between oppositely charged ends of dipoles a DipoleDipole interactions interactions between permanent dipoles such as a CO group i Hvdrooen Bonding dipolar interaction between an electropositive H atom bonded to a highly electronegative atom such as O or N and another highly electronegative atom 1 Rather strong nature and ubiquitous in biological systems 2 Supreme attractive force that renders water a liquid at room temperature b DipoleInduced dipole interactions permanent dipoles in groups such as CO can also induce a dipole moment in a neighboring group like CH3 by virtue of their ability to distort the distribution of its electronic cloud c Londondisoersion forces arise from the fact that the electronic cloud of nonpolar groups such as CH3 is not static but rather experiences rapidly fluctuating motions and in doing so generates a small transient dipole 11 Water a Highly polar due to charge separation or polarization of electronic clouds b Can act as Hbond donor or acceptor c Each water molecule interacts with four other water molecules d lce Hbonds are highly stablestatic expanded water with lower density 92gml e Liquid Hbonds are loose and disordered Unstable and dynamic f Universal solvent excellent solvent for hydrophilic substances those with polar or ionic character g Ability to dissolve polar substances its dipolar character enables it to weaken attractive forces between between oppositely charged ions NaCl h 12 Hydration solvation multiple water molecules surround each ion and neutralize its charge 13 Apolar molecules aggregate when in contact with water ex oils and lipids driven by entropy 14 Hvdroohobic effect driven by an entropic force because the ability of apolar substances to aggregate confers upon surrounding water molecules an entropic advantage exclusion of water molecules enables them water molecules to move and tumble freely increased entropy instead of being locked in an ordered manner with apolar neighbors a Apolar molecules introduced in water aggregate closely in order to minimize their surface area to prevent more water molecules to make more Hbonds with bulk water molecules which would decrease entropy unfavorable By aggregating water molecules can move more freely b Maintenance of intramolecular Hbonding network is crucial for the random motion and movement of water c Central to many biophysicochemical phenomena i separation of oil and water ii membrane bilayer integrity iii folding of proteins in water and lipid bilayer 15 Amphiphilic molecules molecules with hybrid character polar and apolar a Fatty Acids b Polar head interacts with water via Hbonding c Apolar tails exclude water on thermodynamic grounds d Aggregate in water but in an orderly manner driven by hydrophobic effect i Micelles monolayer ii Bicelles bilayer 16 Osmotic pressure pressure needed to prevent influx of water into the tube lower concentration region 17 Dialysis

reaches an equilibrium across both sides 12b Chemical Properties 1 HOH lt2 H OH 2 Hydronium ion H30 3 Proton lumping proton of hydronium molecule jumps from one H20 molecule to another a H and OH thus

each water molecule interacts tetrahedrally sp3 with four other neighboring water molecules Each hydrogen bond is static Ice density 092 gml In water water molecules rapidly uctuate and tumble on a picosecond timescale and is highly disordered Nethertheless water molecules transiently engage in rings of three 3mer four 4mer or five 5mer molecules in liquid Because of the irregularity water can pack much more tightly than ice and has a density of 100gml 3 Describe the nature and relative strength of covalent bonds ionic interactions and van der Waals forces Covalent bonds gt ionic bonds gt

interaction between the dipoles of molecules Hydrogen bonding is a special case of dipoledipole interaction Van der Waals include hydrogen bonding dipole dipole interaction dipoleinduced dipole interaction and london dispersion forces 4 EXplain why polar substances dissolve in water while nonpolar substances do not What is the role of entropy in the hydrophobic effect Polar substances dissolve in water just like with ionic substances due to the interaction between the polar charges of water molecules and the attractive forces of other polar substances This phenomenon is known as hydration Nonpolar substances do not dissolve in water due to the hydrophobic effect which allows for an increase in the entropy of the system substances are separated from each other and not congregated The hydrophobic effect is largely driven by an entropic force in that the ability of apolar substances to aggregate confers upon surrounding water molecules an entropic advantage apolar substances can move about freely amongst each other if they are locked with water molecules they can not move about freely 5 EXplain why amphiphiles form micelles or bilayers in water Due to the hydrophobic effect the polar heads of the amphiphiles bind to water molecules while the apolar parts bond to each other 6 How does osmosis differ from diffusion Which process occurs during dialysis Osmosis only involves the movement of water from high to low concentration Diffusion is the movement of a molecule either water or a solute from high to low concentration Dialysis is the the moment of a solute from high to low concentration So diffusion occurs during dialysis 7 What are the products of ionization of water How are their concentrations related H and H30 OH39 8 Describe how to calculate pH from the concentration of H or 0H pHlogH or pOHlogOH 9 Define acid and base Acid is a chemical substance with a pH lt 7 Base is a chemical substance with a pH gt 7 10 What is the

solution include in order to resist changes in pH on addition of acid or base Since buffers resist changes in pH they are most effective when the concentration of its hydrogen ion H and conjugative base A are equaltherefore pHpKa i1 The addition of small amounts of H or 0H are quickly mopped up with little changes in solution pH 12 Why is it important to maintain biological molecules in a buffered solution Because minor deviations in the pH can cause biological molecules to dissociate and may lead to the death of the organism 13 Carbohydrates 13a Monosaccharide Stereochemistry

Questions 1 How does an aldose differ from a ketose When looking at monosaccharides they are Classified on the basis of whether the carbonyl CO group is an aldehyde aldose or a ketone ketose 2 Draw 21 Fischer projection of Dglucose Draw two stereoisomers of this molecule including one that is an epimer 3 Show how aldoses and ketoses can form five and sixmembered rings 4 Draw a Haworth projection of Dglucose and identify it as an Ot or B anomer 5 Explain why anomers of a monosaccharide can readily interconvert whereas epimers do not Anomers of a monosaccharide can readily interconvert because monosaccharides exist both in linear and ring formation when they become ring formation depending on how the C5 asymmetric carbon attacks the anomeric carbon Cl from above or below will determine which anomer it is Epimers do not interconvert because the configuration itself of the hydroxyl groups on the asymmetric carbons are different thus they cannot move about and switch sides 6 Know the
