Dear student,

Monosaccharides are the simple unit of carbohydrates. They dissolve in water. They are colourless and looks like crystal. General formula for monosaccharide is CnH2nOn. Monosaccharides can combine to form disaccharides, polysaccharides. Examples of monosaccharides are glucose, fructose, galactose etc. Monosaccharide glucose is present in molasses, cherries contains fructose, galactose is present in yogurt.
Derived lipids are formed from simple and compound lipids through hydrolysis. Example: Terpenes, steroids and carotenoids etc
Simple lipids are formed by the esterification of fatty acids and alcohols. They are not soluble in polar solvents but are soluble in organic solvents like chloroform and alcohol. Example fats and waxes.
Cellular pool is the reservoir of biomolecules, compounds,and ions inside the cell is called cellular pool. It has two phases aqueous and non aqueous phase. Aqueous phase contains chemicals or substances dissolved in water while non aqueous phase contains chemicals which is not in water but forms specific structure like cellmembrane, chromatin etc.
