In terms of biochemistry, hydrophobia is the repulsion shown by a molecule to water. Lipids such as glycerol are a classic example, which is not soluble in water and will float on the surface.
Hydrophobic means water repuling/hater
Oil is an example of a hydrophobic molecule.
Lips and fats are considered to be hydrophobic (having a fear of water).
The definition of hydrophobic is to fail to mix with water or repel water. A hydrophobic substance is oil, because it will float and if mixed, will separate on its own.
lipids: phospholipids are an example because their "head" is hydrophilic and their "tail" is hydrophobic
Hydrophobic materials repel water. Examples of these types of molecules would be alkanes, fats, oils, and anything else that is greasy.
Well, hydrophobic means it doesn't "like" water. Fats and oils, for example, are hydrophobic, as they do not mix with water, but instead form balls on the surface. So, chemically, it's made up of hydrogen atoms attached to a carbon skeleton.
No, as the head is not hydrophobic, it is actually hydrophilic. However, the tail is hydrophobic.
There is no such thing as a hydrophobic bond, It is a hydrophobic force. These forces come about when two areas of 2 different molecules containing hydrophobic sections come close together. like in protein's the hydrophilic sections come together to form bonds and the hydrophobic sections come together and so are seen as bonds but in reality they are not bonding but are just brought together to keep the hydrophobic parts away from aqueous environment (see lipid bi layers as an example)
Hydrophobic means that the molecule is repelled by water. You can tell if a molecule is hydrophobic by the way the atoms are arranged.
Proteins are large structures that use the effects of hydrophobic and hydrophilic groups to help them take shape. Another, simpler, example is the Phospholipid found in the bilayer making up the cell membrane.
no, its hydrophobic
Hydrocarbons are hydrophobic.
They are hydrophobic.
Hydrophillic is water loving. Hydrophobic is water avoidance. Generally oils are hydrophobic.
Nylon is a hydrophobic material.
