2.3 Monosaccharide monomers are linked together by condensation reactions

Condensation reactions are the means by which monomers are put together to form polymers. This process also produces water. For example, two glucose molecules (monomers) form maltose through a condensation reaction. Splitting maltose back into two glucose molecules (monomers) uses water and is called hydrolysis.
