    Give proper introduction to the Organic chemistry?


    Answer: Organic chemistry refers to the chemistry of carbon. Organic chemistry is important because the vital biological molecules in living systems are largely organic compounds. Nearly all commonly used plastics are prepared from organic compounds. The carbon atoms form strong chemical bond to other carbon bond and element like hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and the halogens. Compounds which are formed only with carbon and hydrogen are called hydrocarbons.

    Carbon can form following types of bond:

    • It can forms four covalent bonds that may be present as four single bonds per atom.
    • Two single bonds and one double bond.
    • One single bond and one triple bond.

    Organic chemistry is concerns with the structure of compounds. Compounds with the same formula but different structures are called isomers. Both structure and composition are of prime importance in the organic chemistry.
