Suggested Lecture Outline
PART 1: BASIC CHEMISTRY
2.1 Matter is the stuff of the universe and energy moves matter (pp. 43–45)
A. Matter is anything that occupies space and has mass (p. 44).
1. The mass of an object is equal to the amount of matter in the object.
B. Matter exists in one of three states: solid, liquid, or gas. (p. 44)
C. Energy is the capacity to do work, and exists in two forms: potential (inactive)
energy, and kinetic (active) energy. (p. 44)
1. Energy exists in several forms:
a. Chemical energy is stored in chemical bonds, such as the bonds in food mol-ecules.
b. Electrical energy results from the movement of charged particles, as when ions move across cell membranes.
c. Mechanical energy is energy directly involved with moving matter: Consider legs pedaling a bicycle.
d. Radiant energy is energy that travels in waves: light, for example.
2. Energy is easily converted from one form to another, although some energy is lost to the environment in doing so.
II. Composition of Matter: Atoms and Elements
2.2 The properties of an element depend on the structure of its atoms
(pp. 45–48; Figs. 2.1–2.3; Table 2.1)
A. Elements are unique substances that cannot be broken down into simpler substanc-es.
(p. 44; Table 2.1)
1. Four elements—carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen—make up roughly 96% of body weight.
2. Each element is composed of atoms: mostly identical building blocks.
3. There are 118 elements recognized; each is designated by a one- or two-letter abbreviation called the atomic symbol.
B. Atomic Structure (pp. 45–46; Figs. 2.1–2.2)
1. Each atom has a central nucleus made up of protons and neutrons.
a. Protons have a positive charge, while neutrons have no charge, giving the nu-cleus a net positive charge.
b. N Protons and neutrons each weigh 1 atomic mass unit.
2. Electrons occupy random positions within orbitals surrounding the nucleus, have a negative charge, and weightless 0 atomic mass units.
C. Identifying Elements (pp. 47–48; Fig. 2.3)
1. Elements are identified based on their number of protons, neutrons, and elec-trons.
2. The atomic number of an element is equal to the number of protons of an ele-ment; the number of electrons always equals the number of protons.
3. The mass number of an element is equal to the number of protons plus the number
4. Each element has isotopes, structural variations of an atom that have the same
number of protons, but different numbers of neutrons.
5. The atomic weight of an element is a weighted average of the weight’s mass numbers of all known isotopes of an element, based on their relative abundance in nature.
6. Radioisotopes are heavier, unstable isotopes of an element that spontaneously
decompose into more stable forms, producing radioactivity.
a. The time for a radioisotope to lose one-half of its radioactivity is called the
2.3 Atoms bound together form molecules; different molecules can make mixtures (pp. 48–50; Fig. 2.4)
A. Molecules and Compounds (pp. 48–49)
1. A combination of two or more atoms is called a molecule.
2. A combination of two or more of the same atoms is a molecule of an element: a
combination of two or more different atoms is a molecule of a compound.
B. Mixtures (pp. 49–50; Fig. 2.4)
1. Mixtures consist of two or more substances that are physically mixed.
2. Solutions are homogeneous mixtures of compounds that may be gases, liquids, or
a. The substance present in the greatest amount (usually a liquid) is called the solvent, while substances dissolved in the solvent are called solutes.
b. Solutions may be described by their concentrations, often expressed as a per-cent, or molarity.
3. Colloids (emulsions) are heterogeneous mixtures that often appear milky and have
larger solute particles that do not settle out of solution.
4. Suspensions are heterogeneous mixtures with large, often visible solutes that will
settle out of solution.
C. Distinguishing Mixtures from Compounds (p. 50)
1. In mixtures, no chemical bonding occurs between molecules; they can be sepa-rated into their chemical components by physical means, and may be heteroge-neous.
2. In compounds, chemical bonding is possible between molecules, chemical pro-cesses are required to separate the components, and they are only homogenous.
2.4 The three types of chemical bonds are ionic, covalent, and hydrogen
(pp. 50–55; Figs. 2.5–2.10)
A. A chemical bond is an energy relationship between the electrons of the reacting at-oms
(p. 50; Fig. 2.5).
1. The Role of Electrons in Chemical Bonding (p. 51)
a. Electrons occupy specific energy levels surrounding the nucleus, and each energy level holds a specific number of electrons.
b. Electrons fill energy levels beginning closest to the nucleus and progress out-ward.
c. The octet rule states that the maximum number of electrons available for bonding in the outer, or valence, shell is eight.
d. The octet rule, or rule of eights, states that the maximum number of electrons
available for bonding in the outer, or valence, shell is eight; except for the first
energy shell (stable with two electrons), atoms are stable with eight electrons in their outermost (valence) shell.
B. Ionic bonds are chemical bonds that form between two atoms that transfer one or more electrons from one atom to the other. (p. 52; Figs. 2.6, 2.9)
1. The atom that receives the electron takes on a negative charge and becomes an anion, while the atom that loses the electron acquires a positive charge, becom-ing a cation.
a. Most ionic compounds form salts, and when dry, form crystals that are held
together by ionic bonds.
b. Covalent bonds occur when pairs of atoms share electrons, and atoms may share one, two, or three pairs of electrons, forming single, double, or triple bonds.
(pp. 52–53, Figs. 2.7–2.9)
2. Covalent bonds may be either nonpolar, sharing their electrons equally, or polar,
sharing their electrons unevenly.
a. Nonpolar molecules have a balanced distribution of the shared electrons’ charge across the bond.
b. In polar molecules, electrons are more attracted to one atom (an electronega-tive atom) than the other (an electropositive atom), resulting in the area of the bond closest to the electronegative atom assuming a partial negative charge, while the area close to the electropositive atom takes on a partial positive charge.
c. A polar molecule is often referred to as a dipole due to the two poles of charges contained in the molecule.
C. Hydrogen bonds are formed when a hydrogen that is covalently bonded to one at-om
(often oxygen or nitrogen) is attracted to another electronegative atom, forming a sort of “bridge.”
1. Hydrogen bonding is responsible for molecular attractions between water mole-cules that create surface tension.
2. Hydrogen bonds are responsible for stabilizing the three dimensional shapes of large molecules.
2.5 Chemical reactions occur when electrons are shared, gained, or lost
(pp. 55–58; Fig. 2.11)
A. A chemical equation describes what happens in a reaction by indicating number and type of reactants, chemical composition of the products, and the relative pro-portion of each reactant and product (if balanced). (p. 55)
B. Types of Chemical Reactions (pp. 56–57; Fig. 2.11)
1. Synthesis (combination) reactions involve formation of chemical bonds and are the basis of anabolic, or constructive, processes in cells.
2. In a decomposition reaction, a molecule is broken down into smaller molecules by breaking chemical bonds, and is a degradative, or catabolic, process.
3. Exchange (displacement) reactions involve both synthesis and decomposition
reactions, and involve parts of reactants “trading places,” forming new products.
4. Oxidation-reduction reactions are special exchange reactions in which electrons are exchanged between reactants: the molecule losing electrons is oxidized, and the
molecule receiving the electrons is reduced.
C. Energy Flow in Chemical Reactions (p. 57)
1. In exergonic reactions (often catabolic or oxidative reactions), energy is re-leased,
producing products that have lower potential energy than the reactants, while
endergonic reactions (often anabolic reactions) result in products that contain more
potential energy than the reactants.
D. Reversibility of Chemical Reactions (p. 57)
1. Reversible reactions are indicated by double arrows pointing in opposite
2. A chemical equilibrium occurs when the rate of the forward reaction equals the rate of the reverse reaction, resulting in no net change in the amount of reactants or
products, and is shown by the presence of arrows of equal length in the chemi-cal equation.
E. Factors Influencing the Rate of Chemical Reactions (pp. 57–58)
1. Chemicals react when they collide with enough force to overcome the repulsion by their electrons.
2. An increase in temperature increases the rate of a chemical reaction by increas-ing the kinetic energy of the molecules.
3. Higher concentrations of reactants result in a faster rate of reaction because the
likelihood of collisions between molecules increases.
4. Higher concentrations of reactants result in a faster rate of reaction. Smaller
molecules move faster, and tend to collide more frequently, increasing the rate
of a reaction.
5. Catalysts increase the rate of a chemical reaction without taking part in the reac-tion.
PART 2: BIOCHEMISTRY
2.6 Inorganic compounds include water, salts, and many acids and bases
(pp. 58–61; Figs. 2.12–2.13)
A. Water (p. 58)
1. Water is the most important inorganic molecule, and makes up 60–80% of the
volume of most living cells.
2. Water has a high heat capacity, meaning that it absorbs and releases a great deal
of heat before it changes temperature.
3. Water has a high heat of vaporization, meaning that it takes a great deal of ener-gy (heat) to break the bonds between water molecules.
4. Water, called the universal solvent, is a polar molecule that plays a role in disso-ciation of ionic molecules, forms hydration layers that protect charged mole-cules from other charged particles, and functions as an important transport me-dium in the body.
5. Water is an important reactant in many chemical reactions.
6. Water forms a protective cushion around organs of the body.
B. Salts (pp. 58–59; Fig. 2.12)
1. Salts are ionic compounds containing cations other than H+ and anions other than
the hydroxyl (OH–) ion that dissociate in water into their component ions when
2. All ions are electrolytes that conduct electrical currents in solution, an important
feature to body functions.
C. Acids and Bases (pp. 59–61; Fig. 2.13)
1. Acids, also known as proton donors, have a sour taste and dissociate in water to yield hydrogen ions and anions.
2. Bases, also called proton acceptors, taste bitter, feel slippery, and absorb hydro-gen ions.
3. The relative concentration of hydrogen ions is measured in concentration units called pH units.
a. The greater the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution, the more acidic the
solution, and the pH value is lower.
b. The greater the concentration of hydroxyl ions (lower H+ concentration), the more basic, or alkaline, the solution, resulting in a higher pH value.
c. The pH scale extends from 0–14. A pH of 7 is neutral; a pH below 7 is acid-ic; a pH above 7 is basic or alkaline.
4. Neutralization occurs when an acid and a base are mixed together, creating
displacement reactions that form a salt and water.
5. A buffer is combination of a weak acid and weak base that resists large fluctua-tions in pH that would be damaging to living tissues by releasing H+ when pH rises, and
binding up H+ when pH drops.
2.7 Organic compounds are made by dehydration synthesis and broken down by
hydrolysis (pp. 61–62; Fig. 2.14)
A. Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids are molecules unique to living
systems, and all contain carbon, making them organic compounds (pp. 61–62).
2.8 Carbohydrates provide an easily used energy source for the body (pp. 62–64; Fig. 2.15)
A. Carbohydrates are a group of molecules, classified as either monosaccharides,
disaccharides, or polysaccharides, that contain carbon hydrogen and oxygen, and
include sugars and starches. (pp. 62–63)
B. Monosaccharides are simple sugars, named for the number of carbons they con-tain, that are single-chain or single-ring structures. (p. 63)
C. Disaccharides are formed when two monosaccharides are joined by dehydration
synthesis. (p. 63)
D. Polysaccharides are long chains of monosaccharides linked together by dehydra-tion
synthesis: two biologically important polysaccharides are starch and glycogen. (p. 64)
E. In the body, carbohydrates are primarily used as an energy source. (p. 64)
2.9 Lipids insulate body organs, build cell membranes, and provide stored energy (pp. 64–67; Fig. 2.16; Table 2.2)
A. Lipids are insoluble in water, but dissolve readily in nonpolar solvents, and include triglycerides, phospholipids, steroids, and other lipoid molecules. (p. 65)
B. Triglycerides, called neutral fats, consist of glycerol (a sugar alcohol), and fatty ac-ids (linear hydrocarbon chains). (pp. 65–67)
1. Triglycerides are found mainly beneath the skin, and serve as insulation and
2. The fatty acids may be either saturated, having only single bonds between adja-cent carbons, or unsaturated, bearing at least one double bond between a pair of carbons in the chain.
C. Phospholipids are diglycerides with a phosphorus-containing group and two fatty acid chains that are primarily used to construct cell membranes. (p. 67) Steroids, including cholesterol, are flat molecules made up of four interlocking hydrocarbon rings and are used in the body in cell membranes and hormones.
D. Eicosanoids are derived from arachidonic acid, and function in blood clotting, and regulation of blood pressure, inflammation, and labor contractions. (p. 67)
2.10 Proteins are the body’s basic structural material and have many vital
functions (pp. 67–72; Figs. 2.17–2.20; Table 2.3)
A. Proteins are the basic structural material of the body and play vital roles in cell
function. (p. 67)
B. Proteins are long chains of amino acids connected by peptide bonds, which join the amine of one amino acid to the acid of the next. (p. 68)
C. The structure of proteins has four structural levels: (p. 68)
1. The linear sequence of amino acids is the primary structure.
2. Proteins twist and turn on themselves to form a more complex secondary struc-ture;
either spiraled or
3. A more complex structure is tertiary structure, resulting from protein folding up-on
itself to form a ball-like structure.
4. Quaternary structure results from two or more polypeptide chains grouped to-gether
to form a complex protein.
D. Fibrous and Globular Proteins (p. 69)
1. Fibrous proteins are extended, strand-like, insoluble molecules that provide
mechanical support and tensile strength to tissues.
2. Globular proteins are compact, spherical, water-soluble, and chemically active
molecules that oversee most cellular functions.
E. Protein denaturation is a loss of the specific three-dimensional structure of a pro-tein, leading to a potential loss of function, that may occur when globular proteins experience changes in environmental factors such as temperature and pH. (pp. 69–70)
F. Enzymes and Enzyme Activity (pp. 71–72)
1. Enzymes are globular proteins that act as biological catalysts, enabling biological processes to happen quickly enough to support life.
2. Enzymes may be purely protein or may consist of two parts, the protein apoen-zyme and non-protein cofactor, that are collectively called a holoenzyme.
3. Each enzyme is chemically specific, binding only certain substrates, and pos-sesses
an active site, the location on the protein that catalyzes the reaction.
4. Enzymes work by lowering the energy required by a reaction, the activation en-ergy.
2.11 DNA and RNA store, transmit, and help express genetic information
(pp. 72–74; Fig. 2.21; Table 2.4)
A. Nucleic acids have two primary classes: deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonu-cleic acid (RNA). (p. 72)
B. Nucleotides are the structural units of nucleic acids, and consist of three compo-nents: a pentose sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogen-containing base. (p. 72)
C. Five nitrogenous bases are used in nucleic acids: two large, double-ringed purines,
adenine (A) and guanine (G), and three smaller, single-ring pyrimidines, cytosine (C), uracil (U), and thymine (T). (p. 73)
D. DNA is the genetic material of the cell and is found within the nucleus. (p. 74)
1. DNA has two primary roles: it replicates itself before cell division and provides instructions for making all of the proteins found in the body.
2. The structure of DNA is a double-stranded polymer containing the nitrogenous bases adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine, and the sugar deoxyribose.
3. Bonding of the nitrogenous bases in DNA occurs between complementary pairs: A bonds to T, and G bonds to C.
E. RNA is located outside the nucleus and is used to make proteins using the instruc-tions provided by the DNA. (p. 74)
1. The structure of RNA is a single-stranded polymer containing the nitrogenous bases A, G, C, and U, and the sugar ribose.
2. In RNA, complementary base pairing occurs between G and C, and A and U.
2.12 ATP transfers energy to other compounds (pp. 74–75; Figs. 2.22–2.23)
A. ATP is the primary energy transfer molecule used in the cell. (p. 74)
B. ATP is an adenine-containing RNA nucleotide that has two additional phosphate groups attached, connected by high-energy bonds. (p. 74)
C. Energy is transferred from ATP to other systems in cells by removing the terminal phosphate from ATP and binding it to other compounds, a process called phos-phorylation.

10. Appendix E: Periodic Table of the Elements
1. Students are commonly intimidated by chemistry or think they do not like it. Make chemistry relevant by frequently mentioning how the concepts they cover now will be applied in later topics. Also, when encountering those applications later in the course, make a point to reconnect them to the rules and principles presented in this chapter.
2. The Internet is a wealth of good animations that allow students to see chemistry
happening. Find some short animations to show during class as you lecture to allow
students to visualize what you are saying.
3. As an alternative to presenting the chemistry in Chapter 2 as a distinct block of ma-terial, you could provide the absolute minimum coverage of the topics at this time and expand upon topics later as areas of application are discussed.
4. Students often find the concept of isotopes confusing. A clear distinction between atomic mass and atomic weight will help clarify the topic.
5. In discussing radioisotopes, it might be helpful to refer the students back to the
discussion of PET scans in A Closer Look in Chapter 1 (p. 36).
6. Oxidation-reduction reactions involve the loss and gain of electrons. The reactant
oxidized will lose electrons, while the reactant reduced will gain electrons. One easy way to remember this is by using the phrase “Leo the lion goes ger.” Leo stands for “loss of electrons is oxidation,” and ger for “gain of electrons is reduction.”
7. In biological oxidation-reduction reactions, the loss and gain of electrons is often
associated with the loss and gain of hydrogen atoms. Electrons are still being trans-ferred since the hydrogen atom contains an electron.
8. Students often do not align polar and nonpolar bonds strictly with covalent bonds. In
order to ensure that they do not impart these qualities to ionic bonds, emphasize the
difference between the stable sharing of electrons in covalent bonds, even when the
compound is in water versus the dissociation of ionic bonds, and the resulting gain or loss of electrons experienced by these molecules.
9. The relationship between the terms catalyst and enzyme can be clarified by asking the students if all enzymes are catalysts and if all catalysts are enzymes.
10. Table 2.4 is an excellent summary of the differences between DNA and RNA. This
information will be important when discussing protein synthesis.
11. The importance of ATP to the workings of the cell should be emphasized. Students should realize that without ATP, molecules cannot be synthesized or degraded, cells
cannot maintain boundaries, and life processes cease.
12. The cycling back and forth between ATP and ADP is a simple but important con-cept
often overlooked by students.
1. Audiovisual materials are listed in the Multimedia in the Classroom and Lab section of this Instructor Guide. (p. 468)
2. Obtain and/or construct 3-D models of various types of biological molecules such as
glucose, DNA, protein, and lipids.
3. Bring in materials or objects that are composed of common elements, for example, a gold chain, coal, copper pipe, cast iron. Also provide examples of common com-pounds such as water, table salt, vinegar, and sodium bicarbonate. Solicit definitions of atom, element, and compound and an explanation of how an atom and a mole-cule of a compound differ.
4. Obtain a two-foot-long piece of thick string or cord. Slowly twist to exhibit primary,
secondary, and tertiary levels of protein organization.
5. Obtain an electrolyte testing system (lightbulb setup connected to electrodes) and prepare a series of solutions such as salt, acid, base, glucose, etc. Place the elec-trodes into the
solutions to illustrate the concept of electrolytes.
6. Prepare two true solutions (1% sodium chloride; 1% glucose) and two colloidal so-lutions (1% boiled starch, sol state; Jell-O®, gel state). Turn off the room lights and pass a beam of light through each to demonstrate the Tyndall effect of colloids.
7. Obtain two strings of dissimilar “pop-it” beads. Put the beads together to demon-strate a synthesis reaction, and take them apart to demonstrate a decomposition re-action. Take a bead from each different chain and put them together to illustrate an exchange reaction.
8. Use a metal or plastic “coil” toy to demonstrate denaturation of an enzyme. Tie col-ored yarn on the coil at two sites that are widely separated, and then twist the coil upon itself to bring the two pieces of yarn next to each other. Identify the site where the yarn pieces are next to each other as the active site. Then remind students that when the hydrogen bonds holding the enzyme (or structural protein) in its specific 3-D structure are broken, the active site (or structural framework) is destroyed. Un-twist the coil to illustrate this point.
Critical Thinking/Discussion Topics

27. HCl ionizes to form current-conducting electrolytes. Dextrose does not ionize, and therefore does not conduct current. (p. 50)
28. a. Two oxygen atoms: Covalent. b. Four hydrogen atoms and one carbon atom:
Covalent c. A potassium atom: Ionic d. A fluorine atom: Ionic. (pp. 52–53)
29. Atoms of different elements are composed of different numbers of protons, elec-trons, and neutrons. (pp. 54–55)
30. a. The reversibility of the reaction can be indicated by double reaction arrows pointed in opposing directions.
b. When arrows are of equal length, the reaction is at equilibrium.
c. Chemical equilibrium is reached when, for each molecule of product formed, one product molecule breaks down, releasing the same reactants. (p. 57)
31. Primary structure—linear sequence of amino acids in a polypeptide chain; second-ary structure—coiling of primary structure into alpha helix or ß-pleated sheet; ter-tiary
structure—folding of alpha helices or beta-pleated sheets into a ball-like, or globu-lar, molecule. (pp. 68–70)
32. Dehydration refers to the joining together of two molecules by the removal of wa-ter.
In the synthesis of disaccharides or peptides and proteins, monosaccharides are joined to form disaccharides, and amino acids are joined to form dipeptides (and proteins) by this process. Hydrolysis refers to the breakdown of a larger molecule such as a disaccharide into small molecules or monosaccharides by the addition of water at the bond that joins them. In this process, a larger molecule, the disaccha-ride, was degraded to produce smaller molecules. (p. 56)
33. Enzymes decrease activation energy and decrease the randomness of reactions by binding reversibly to the reacting molecules and holding them in the proper posi-tion(s) to
interact. (p. 72)
34. The surface tension of water tends to pull water molecules into a spherical shape, and since the glass does not completely overcome this attractive force, water can el-evate slightly above the rim of the glass. (p. 54)
Critical Thinking and Clinical Application Questions
1. Sodas are strong acids that can reduce bone and tooth salts. Calcium phosphate makes teeth hard and therefore more resistant to tooth decay. (pp. 58–59)
2. a. Some antibiotics compete with the substrate at the active site of the enzyme. This would tend to reduce the effectiveness of the reaction.
b. Because the bacteria would be unable to catalyze the essential chemical reactions normally brought about by the “blocked” enzymes, the anticipated effect would be
the inhibition of its metabolic activities. This would allow white blood cells to remove them from the system.
c. The antibiotic would also affect some human cells, and this could cause them to cease their functions, hopefully only temporarily. (p. 72)
3. a. pH is defined as the measurement of the free (unbound) hydrogen ion concentra-tion in a solution. The normal blood pH is 7.35–7.45.
b. Severe acidosis is critical because it can adversely affect cell membranes, the function of the kidneys, muscle contraction, and neural activity. (pp. 59–61)
4. Hyperventilation was causing the blood pH to rise, becoming more basic or alkaline. This is due to increased loss of CO2 from the lungs, resulting in changes in the car-bonic
acid-bicarbonate buffer system in the blood. (pp. 60–61)
5. Cellulose is a polysaccharide found in all plant products that adds bulk to the diet to promote feces through the colon. Water acts as a lubricating liquid within the colon, which eases feces through the bowel. (p. 56)
