reactivity
Molecules are everywhere - chemistry affects everything!

Metabolism
C6H12O6 + 6 O2 ----------> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + Energy
Carbon atoms in glucose are oxidized - each carbon loses 2
electrons) as they are converted to carbon dioxide.
Each oxygen atom is reduced by gaining 2 electrons when it is
converted to water.
Part of the energy is released as heat and the remainder is
stored in the chemical bonds of "energetic" compounds such
as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and nicotinamide adenine
dinucleotide (NADH).
Greenhouse Effect - why is CO2 a greenhouse gas, but N2, is not?
