Polysaccharides are polymeric sugar particles made out of long chains of monosaccharide units bound together by glycosidic linkages, and on hydrolysis give the constituent monosaccharides or oligosaccharides. Polysaccharides range in structure from linear to highly branched. Models include storage polysaccharides, for example, starch and glycogen, and basic polysaccharides, for example, cellulose and chitin. Polysaccharides are regularly very heterogeneous, containing slight alterations of the repeating unit. Depending upon the structure, these macromolecules can have unmistakable properties from their monosaccharide building blocks. They might be amorphous or even insoluble in water. When each monosaccharide in a polysaccharide is similar, the polysaccharide is known as a homopolysaccharide or homoglycan and when there is excess of one kind of monosaccharide they are called heteropolysaccharides or heteroglycans. Characteristic saccharides are by and large of basic starches called monosaccharides with general equation (CH2O)n where n is at least three.
