Learn and practice the molecular structures and biological features of over 40 carbohydrates.
The app is divided into 3 parts: Introduction, learning unit, exercise unit.
In the introduction you will learn basic information about the conformation of monosaccharides, carbohydrate detection methods and carbohydrate degradation.
The following information is provided in the learning unit: monosaccharides, aldoses, ketoses, stereochemistry, disaccharides, polysaccharides, glycosylation and amino sugars.
In the exercise unit the structures of the saccharides are arranged randomly and can be assigned to their name and/or a suitable property by drag and drop.
You can change the selection of saccharides by selecting or deselecting the following classifications: Aldoses, ketoses, pentoses, hexoses, monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides.
The correctness of the chosen arrangement, as well as the correct solution can be displayed at any time.
The app assists you in learning related terms by assigning them.
The operation is self-explanatory and intuitively understandable.
The target group of the app are scientific, interested pupils and students of biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacy, biology and medicine.
Learn and practice the 2D structures, names and biological properties of important monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides.
You can display the names and/or properties of the saccharides.
The structures or names are arranged randomly. The assignment to the corresponding feature can be shuffled at any time or the correct assignment of the features can be displayed.
The structural formulas can be enlarged by double tapping or long pressing, so that details can also be seen.
No registration is required.
No telemetry data are recorded!
