Intermolecular Interactions,
Thermodynamics and
pH/Buffers

Review Session Details

Theory and problem solving on the following topics:

  • Types of intermolecular interactions in biochemistry (i.e. ionic and dipole interactions)
  • The hydrophobic effect
  • Three thermodynamic parameters: ∆H, ∆S and ∆G
  • ∆G and equilibrium constants (Keq) of biochemical reactions
  • Composition and structure of DNA and RNA nucleic acids
  • Three conformations of nucleic acids
  • Drawing oligomers of DNA and RNA
  • Mechanism for the formation of a phosphodiester bond
  • Identifying nucleic acid base pairing and tautomers
  • Understand how to assess amino acid stereochemistry
  • Switch between line structure and Fisher projection for sugars
  • Learn the mechanism for the formation of a amide bond
  • Review 20 natural amino acids and their pKas
  • Amino acid charge at various pH and its isoelectric point (pI) values
  • Sugar stereochemistry (i.e. D/L sugars, enantiomers, diastereomers, epimers)
  • Structural difference between Ribose, Glucose, Mannose and Galactose and Fructose
  • The concept of mutarotation about the anomeric carbon
  • Learn to convert between Fisher projections, Haworth projection and line structures
  • Sugar function in a cellular context
  • Review Session will cover past TEST #2 questions from previous years!
