The chemical reactions that occur inside the human body are extremely complex. One of the main reactions that occurs is the metabolism of glucose, and another reaction is the liver’s detoxification. The metabolism of glucose is one of the main factors that affect the levels of insulin that are generated by the liver. The metabolism of glucose is also related to a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The human body produces a lot of glucose. This excess glucose is quickly transported to the cells in the body by the bloodstream and is rapidly processed into glucose. When the body is in an energy deficit, it will try to use any glucose it can find.

The liver then converts the glucose into the ketone body acetoacetate, which has a very powerful detoxifying effect on the body. In addition to the normal conversion process, the liver also produces other substances such as urea, bile salts, and purine.

Pearson Chemistry: Describing Chemical Reactions

Here is a summary of key terms and concepts related to chemical equations:

  • Chemical equation: Symbolic representation of a chemical reaction. Shows the reactants, products, direction of reaction, and relative amounts (coefficients).
  • Skeleton equation: Shows only chemical formulas of reactants and products without coefficients.
  • Catalyst: Substance that increases the reaction rate but is not consumed.
  • Coefficients: Numbers placed in front of chemical formulas in an equation to balance the number of atoms.
  • Balanced equation: Equation where the number of atoms of each element is the same on both sides.
  • Reactants: Starting substances in a chemical reaction.
  • Products: Substances formed by a chemical reaction.
  • Combination reaction: Two or more reactants form one product.
  • Decomposition reaction: One reactant breaks down to form multiple products.
  • Single-replacement reaction: One element replaces another element in a compound.
  • Combustion reaction: Reactant combines with oxygen, releasing energy.
  • Ionic solubility rules: Used to predict if precipitate will form when mixing aqueous ionic solutions.
  • Avogadro’s number: 6.02 x 10^23 items/mole.
  • Molar mass: Grams per mole of a substance.
  • Empirical formula: Simplest whole number ratio of elements in a compound.
  • Chemical change: Bonds are broken and formed, accompanied by energy changes.
