Carbohydrates are carbon compounds that contain large quantities of hydroxyl groups. Carbohydrates also can combine with lipid to form glycolipids or with protein to form glycoproteins. Carbohydrates are made up of a 1:2:1 ratio of Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen (CH2O)n. carbohydrates are for structural purposes, such as cellulose (which composes plants' cell walls) and chitin (a major component of insect exoskeletons).
