Homework Help: Functional groups

  1. Jul 30, 2007 #1
    I was studying my brother's old notes to prepare me for my upcoming AP Biology class.

    I read over six main functional groups (hydroxyl, carbonyl, carboxyl, amino, sulfhydrl, phosphate) and subsequently, there were follow-up questions. One of them asked to draw a molecule with all of the six main functional group.

    Unfortunately, my brother didn't put down an answer, but I was just wondering if there really is a molecule that contains all of the six functional groups I listed?

    You could just create one yourself... Just use a straight carbon chain and add groups on the carbons...
