hi iv hit a brick wall and not sure what to write any help would be appreciated thanks. Q:
Research some organic reactions that take place in the living system in and around us. Explain why it is important that we are aware of and understand these reactions.
Extra info:Choose at least 3 different types of biological molecules which have at least 2 functional groups. Argue a case for why studying simple molecules is relevant to the study of the larger biological molecules you have identified. Arguing why studying simple organic chemistry is relevant to the study of biological molecules.

Proteins would be a good one to go for - think of all their different uses - structural, enzymatic, signalling, motors...

What functional groups are there in proteins? How are amino acids ideally suited for building an enzyme? What connexions are there between simple molecules such as amino acids and the functioning of organ systems such as the nervous system (clue - think about membrane structures).
