SBI4U Molecules of Life - Functional Groups and Linkages For background please read p 16 -24 of the text Sketch basic functional groups Sketch the changes as a 3 carbon hydrocarbon changes one carbon for an hydroxide, then for an aldehyde, then for a carboxylic acid. What chemical properties are affected by this progressive change. \ Compare “neutral” covalent bonds with polar covalent bonds. What does oxidation mean? What does reduction mean? Which has more energy? From the text, document using words or diagrams, how an ionic substance dissovles in water, and how water molecules interact with each other. Acids and bases are discussed on page 21 and 22. Please diagram the process of carbonic acid formation from water and CO2. Answer questions #6-15 from page 23.
