Examples of Carbohydrates

-Sorbitol

-Ribose

-Glycogen

-Cellulose

Functional Group(s): Carbonyl

Carbonyl (OH) is present in almost every Carbohydrate.

Functions of Carbohydrates

Common functions for this biomolecule are to energize living things and to structure materials.

Structure vs. Function

it's function is to energize other living beings, so the structure has a special place where energy is stored. It is stored between the bonds of phosphate molucules
