The 4 Classes of Organic Compounds Containing Carbon

Organic compounds are chemical compounds we find in living things. These compounds contain carbon, as well as hydrogen. These two chemical elements link to one another in long chains. In the long chains, carbon is the backbone while hydrogen atoms are connected to the carbon atoms. The ability of atoms to join to one another […]

The Major Elements And Their Chemical Symbols Found In Living Things

Living things need chemical elements, either to form the structure/cells/organs inside themselves or to help them in chemical-based process. If we talk about the major elements which make up the cells of living organisms, there are only four of them. The Major Elements And Their Chemical Symbols Found In Living Things There are some other […]

Which Element Is The Major Component of Organic Molecules in All Living Organisms?

Organic molecules are molecules that consist of carbon. Although you can find carbon in every organic molecule, some non-organic molecules contain carbon. Some of the examples are carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbonates (such as calcium carbonate), carbides (such as calcium carbide), and cyanides (such as sodium cyanide).

5 Sub Branches of Organic Chemistry – Defination – Classification – Application

Around 1850, organic chemistry was defined as the chemistry of compound from living things because of that arise a term called “organic”. This definition was felt ancient in 1900 at that time chemist were synthesizing new compounds in laboratory, and many of these new compounds had no relation with any living things. Today, it is defined […]
