    Do you see the 2 functional groups that would be linked to make a dipeptide?

    So just a C-N bond?

    You will form a new C-N bond between the two amino acids. Specifically between the nitrogen of one molecule, and the carboxylic acid carbon of the other molecule.
    They will react to form an amide link in a de-hydration reaction.

    Sorry, but I am still unsure how that would look on the diagram?
    thanks
