Mega Molecules: Tales of Adhesives, Bread, Diamonds, Eggs, by Hans-Georg Elias

By Hans-Georg Elias

All lifestyles is predicated on titanic molecules, scientifically referred to as "mac­ romolecules". people, animals, and crops stop to exist with out those structural, reserve, and delivery molecules. No lifestyles may be propagated with out macromolecular DNA and RNA. with no macromolecules, we'd merely dine on water, sugars, fat, supplements and salts yet needed to relinquish meat, eggs, cereals, greens, and culmination. we'd no longer stay in homes due to the fact that wooden and lots of stones include macromole­ cules. with no macromolecules, no outfits considering the fact that all fibers are made up of macromolecules. No present-day vehicle may run: All tires are in line with macromolecules. with out macromole­ cules no photographic movies, no electronics ... If macromolecules are so very important then why is usually so little recognized approximately their roles and why are they so little pointed out in class, if in any respect? As usually in human background, tra­ dition is critical and technology makes no exception. Chemis­ try out was once tested because the chemistry of low molecular weight compounds given that those have been so much effortless to enquire, charac­ terize, and convert. a stunning tower of notion used to be erected via the chemical sciences lengthy ahead of the belief of huge mole­ cules, macromolecules, took carry. there has been no area for novices during this tower. Even this present day you can actually know about chemistry with no listening to a observe approximately macromolecules.
