Organic chemistry is the study of the Construction, properties; Composition, reactions, and synthesis of carbon-containing compounds include not only hydrocarbons but also compounds with any number of different elements, such as hydrogen. The other elements can be with carbon and hydrogen in organic compounds but not limited to, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Sulphur, etc.
Organic chemistry is an extremely innovative science in which
Chemists produce new molecules and learn more about the properties of existing compounds.
Organic compounds are all around us. They are fundamental to the
The economic growth of the United States from the plastics, rubber, gasoline, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, detergent, coatings, dyestuff, and agrichemical industries, to mention a couple. Many contemporary, high-tech substances are at least partially composed of organic compounds.
Organic chemists spend a lot of their time producing new compounds and developing better ways of synthesizing formerly known chemicals.
