    D and L amino acids. Help :)

    Hello! So, i have a problem with this one. i was trying to go thru some chemistry problems in my book, and all was fine until i got to this task, and it goes as follow: Sometimes chemists need the unnatural D enantiomer of an amino acid, often as part of a drug or an insecticide. Most L-amino...

    Time required to Hydrolyze amino acid Glycine

    Hello all, For evolution and creation I like to know: how long does it take to break Glycine when it comes into touch with water. Because the theory goes that underwater volcano could supply the needed chemicals to create amino acids. The volcano could supply the needed energy to create amino...

    Amino acids structure.

    I'm really stuck on this question I have for college. To be honest, I dont think we have even covered this yet so I might be getting ahead of my self. The question is. Using structural formulae, write an equation which accurately describes the formation of the dipeptide Gly-Ala from the amino...

    Amino acids as acid/base

    How does the following reaction demonstrate an amino acid as an acid: H2NCH2COOH + CH3OH → H2NCH2COOCH3 + H2O How does the following reaction demonstrate an amino acid as a base: H2NCH2COOH + CH3COCl → CH3CONHCH2COOH + HCl An acid is a species that DONATES a proton and a base is a species that...
