in this video, we're going to talk about the formation and the breakdown of Polly Sack, arise and so recall from our previous lesson videos that dehydration synthesis reactions would be needed to link individual mono. Sacha rides together an order to build Polly Sacha rides. And so, once again, the synthesis part of dehydration lets us know that we're going to be building or synthesizing the poly Sacha rides. Now the co Vaillant bonds that link individual mono sacha rides together are going to be referred to as glycoprotein acidic bonds. And so Glick acidic bonds are once again the Covalin bonds that link mono. Sacha rides together and then last but not least, recall that the hydraulics, ISS reaction, eyes what's going to be needed to break down. So hydraulics is's used to break down Polly Sack rides into individual mono sack rides. So when we take a look at our image down below, we can see the formation of a sugar called maltose from two glucose molecules. So notice on the far left. Over here we have these two separate mono sack rides, one over here and one over here, and these are two separate glucose mono sacha rides. And so if we wanted to join these two separate glucose mono Sacha rides together like what we have over here, then we're going to need, of course, a dehydration synthesis reaction, which we know dehydrates the molecule releasing a water molecule. And also what forms is a co violent bond linking the two separate mono sack rides. And so when these two are linked together, the Covalin bond that links them is referred to as a glycol acidic bond, just like what we indicated up above. And so notice that as soon as these two glucose mono sacha rides are joined together, it becomes a new sugar that we call mall toes. And so this is a maltose die Sacha ride, starting to build power Polly Sacha right here. And so if we wanted to break down this Malta's Dice, aka right into its individual mono sack rides. And, of course, we're going to need the hydraulics, ISS reaction and recall licenses. That route that means breakdown or cleave. And so that's going to break down or cleave the Glick acidic bond here to release the two separate mano sack rides. And so, ah, lot of review here. But one of the main takeaways is once again that the bond between individual mono sack rides is referred to as a glycol acidic bond. So this here concludes our introduction to the formation and breakdown of Polly Sacha rides, and I'll see you all in our next video.
