Organic Chemistry

What is organic chemistry?

Organic chemistry is the study of properties, composition and structure, preparation, and reactions of organic compounds or molecules. Simply, organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon compounds.

It is not only included hydrocarbons. organic compounds are hydrocarbons or derivatives of hydrocarbon.

In this part, we discuss the topics related to the structure, composition, properties, and preparation of different types of organic compounds.
