Chapter 4: Carbon & The Molecular Diversity of Life Organic Chemistry -Organic Molecules: contain Carbon and Hydrogen Hydrocarbon: (Hydrophobic) -Energy rich bonds - Good storage molecule for energy -Provide energy Miller-Urey Experiment (1953) Simulated early Earth’s environment Within one week, simple carbon compounds were formed (organic compounds) Similar experiments formed amino acids and adrenine Formed organic compounds from simple inorganic compounds Carbon Contains 4 valence electrons -Can form chains, branches, or rings -4 covalent bonds Isomers: - Molecules have same chemical formula but different structural formula - Ex: C 6 12(s6gar) has many forms Functional Groups - Hydroxyl = OH - Carboxyl = COOH (O’s separate) - Amino = NH 2 - Phosphate = PO (Neg4tive charge) - Methyl = CH (turn off genes) 3 ATP Adenosine Triphosphate -Nucleotide with 3 negatively charged phosphate groups (A-P~P~P) High energy bonds are unstable due to repulsion of like charges Molecule used for all energy requirements of cells Break down easily to release energy P-P-P-Adenosine—Reacts with H O-P 2 i (Inorganic Phosphate)enosine + Energy
