Problem 90E

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. The simplest amino acid is glycine (H2NCH2COOH). Draw a Lewis structure for glycine. (Hint: the central atoms in the skeletal structure are nitrogen bonded to carbon, which is bonded to another carbon. The two oxygen atoms are bonded directly to the rightmost carbon atom.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 90E Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 1 Amino acids belonging to the alpha serie (as glycine) have an atom of Carbon that linked to an amino group ( -NH ) 2 one side, while at the other side the same atom of carbon is linked to a carboxyl group (COOH). In this case, since atom of carbon can form four bonds in total, the other two bonds are formed with two other Hydrogens
