high-energy compounds

high-energy compounds
compounds containing high-energy bonds (q.v.); because they yield high levels of free energy on hydrolysis, the compounds are basic to the energy supply of living organisms. Important classes include acid anhydrides (e.g., adenosine triphosphate, aminoacyl adenylates), enol phosphates (e.g., phosphoenolpyruvate), thioesters (e.g., acetyl coenzyme A), and phosphagens (e.g., phosphocreatine). Called also energy-rich c's.
