Is glucose polar or non polar?
What type of sugar is starch?
Glucose can be converted into starch for storage. Starch is better than glucose for storage because it is insoluble. Both glucose and starch can be converted into other substances. These can then be used for energy, growth and other storage products.
Why is starch better than glucose?
We know that water is smaller than glucose and IKI because of their molecular formulas. Glucose is composed of 6 water molecules and an additional 6 carbons which give it significantly larger structure due to the greater amount of bonds.
The combination of two monosaccharides produces disaccharides. Polysaccharides are formed by combining a large number of glucose monomers together. The main difference between sugar and starch is that sugars are disaccharides or monosaccharides whereas starch is a polysaccharide.
Is starch or glucose bigger?
Sugars (e.g., glucose) and salts are polar molecules, and they dissolve in water, because the positive and negative parts of the two types of molecules can distribute themselves comfortably among one another.
