8). In the first step, precursors are converted to metabolites, simple organic compounds that are intermediates in cellular energy transformation and in the biosynthesis of various sets of building blocks: amino acids, sugars, nucleotides, fatty acids, and glycerol. Through covalent linkage of these building blocks, the macromolecules are constructed: proteins, polysaccharides, polynucleotides (DNA and RNA), and lipids. 7 Examples of the versatility of COC bonds in building complex structures: linear, cyclic, branched, and planar.

Carbon can form as many as four such bonds by sharing each of the four electrons in its outer shell with electrons contributed by other atoms. Atoms commonly found in covalent linkage to C are C itself, H, O, and N. Hydrogen can form one such bond by contributing its single electron to the formation of an electron pair. Oxygen, with two unpaired electrons in its outer shell, can participate in two covalent bonds, and nitrogen, which has three unshared electrons, can form three such covalent bonds.

Two properties of carbon covalent bonds merit particular attention. One is the ability of carbon to form covalent bonds with itself. The other is the tetrahedral nature of the four covalent bonds when carbon atoms form only single bonds. Together these properties hold the potential for an incredible variety of linear, branched, and cyclic compounds of C. 3 What Is the Structural Organization of Complex Biomolecules? 01 *Figures for the earth’s crust and the human body are presented as percentages of the total number of atoms; seawater data are in millimoles per liter.
