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.

[IUPAC]IUPAC.org Inorganic compound Compound that is not an organic compound An inorganic compound is typically a chemical compound that lacks carbon–hydrogen bonds, that is, a compound that is not an organic compound. However, the distinction is not clearly defined and agreed upon, and authorities have differing views on the subject.[1][2][3] The study of inorganic compounds is known as inorganic chemistry. Some simple compounds that contain carbon are often considered inorganic. Examples include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonates, carbides, cyanides, cyanates, and thiocyanates. Many of these are normal parts of mostly organic systems, including organisms; describing a chemical as inorganic does not necessarily mean that it does not occur within living things.

Organic Chemistry Portal Stereoisomers Stereoisomers As defined in an earlier introductory section, isomers are different compounds that have the same molecular formula. When the group of atoms that make up the molecules of different isomers are bonded together in fundamentally different ways, we refer to such compounds as constitutional isomers. For example, in the case of the C4H8 hydrocarbons, most of the isomers are constitutional. Shorthand structures for four of these isomers are shown below with their IUPAC names. Note that the twelve atoms that make up these isomers are connected or bonded in very different ways. The bonding patterns of the atoms in these two isomers are essentially equivalent, the only difference being the relative orientation or configuration of the two methyl groups (and the two associated hydrogen atoms) about the double bond. Configurational Stereoisomers of Alkenes Some examples of this configurational stereoisomerism (sometimes called geometric isomerism) are shown below. Ethane Conformations
