    Glucose molecules can link together.

    When 2 glucose molecules link up, this sugar is known as maltose. It is a disaccharide (2 sugars).

    When many glucose molecules link together in a long chain, molecules called polysaccharides (many sugars) are formed.

    The link formed between each molecule is known as a glycosidic bond.

    Amylose has several hundred glucose monomers linked together in this way.
