You can find out a lot of these through google:
Glucose: C6H12O6
Maltose: C12H22O11
Starch: It is a giant polymer of glucose monomers together bonded by Glycosidic bonds.

Amino acids: There are 21 different amino acids, each with different formulae
Protein: There are infinite amounts of different proteins, each made from millions (or billions) of different amino acid combinations.

Lipids: The most common lipids ae triglycerides, made with a glycerol molecule and three fatty acids.
Glycerol is the biological name for Propane-1,2,3-triol, it's C3H8O3,
Fatty acids can be any type of carboxylic acid. They can very depending on length and saturation (whether they have double bonds).
