Organic Chemistry Introduction - What Organic Chemists Do By Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D. Updated April 05, 2016. Organic chemistry is more than simply the study of carbon or the study of chemicals in living organisms. Take a look at what organic chemistry is, why it is important, and what organic chemists do. What Is Organic Chemistry? Organic chemistry is the study of carbon and the study of the chemistry of life. Why Is Organic Chemistry Important? Organic chemistry is important because it is the study of life and all of the chemical reactions related to life. continue reading below our video What Does an Organic Chemist Do? An organic chemist is a chemist with a college degree in chemistry.

Royal Society of Chemistry | Advancing the Chemical Sciences Organic compound - Wikipedia Methane, CH4; it is one of the simplest organic compounds. An organic compound is virtually any chemical compound that contains carbon, although a consensus definition remains elusive and likely arbitrary.[1] Organic compounds are rare terrestrially, but of central importance because all known life is based on organic compounds. The most basic petrochemicals are considered the building blocks of organic chemistry.[2] Definitions of organic vs inorganic[edit] For historical reasons discussed below, a few types of carbon-containing compounds, such as carbides, carbonates, simple oxides of carbon (for example, CO and CO2), and cyanides are considered inorganic.[3] The distinction between organic and inorganic carbon compounds, while "useful in organizing the vast subject of chemistry... is somewhat arbitrary".[1] Organic chemistry is the science concerned with all aspects of organic compounds. History[edit] Vitalism[edit] The word organic is historical, dating to the 1st century. Databases[edit]

Carbon has the ability to form a chemical bond with a wide variety of chemical elements and other carbon atoms. This allows a nearly unlimited number of combinations. The subject of carbon compounds is called organic chemistry because all known organisms, or living things, are made up of water and carbon compounds. Organic chemistry largely involves the synthesis, or formation, of organic products by chemical reaction using different reactants and reagents, the substances used up during a reaction. Several different areas of chemistry expand on the concepts and principles of organic chemistry, including biochemistry, microbiology, and medicine. History[change | change source] The term organic originates from Jons Jacob Berzelius, a 19th century Swedish scientist, who used the term to refer to substances present in living things.
