the study of compounds that contain the element carbon. (see organic compound)
an area of chemistry dealing principally with the chemistry of carbon.
adj.: The chemistry of carbon compounds.
the chemistry of compounds containing carbon (originally defined as the chemistry of substances produced by living organisms but now extended to substances synthesized artificially)
A branch of chemistry concerned solely with carbon and its compounds.
A branch of chemistry dedicated to the study of the structures, synthesis, and reactions of carbon-containing compounds.
The chemistry of living matter (chemistry of carbon atoms and molecules they form).
The chemistry of substances that contain carbon-hydrogen bonds.
the study of the carbon atom and the compounds it forms, mainly with the 20 lightest elements, especially hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. Some 3 million organic compounds have been identified and named.
The study of carbon compounds (organic compounds). organic compound A chemical comound containing the element carbon and usually synthesized by cells. organism An individual living thing, such as a bacterium, fungus, protist, plant or animal. organogenesis(or- gan-oh- jen-eh-sis) [Gk. organon, instrument, tool + genos, origin, descent] An early period of rapid embryonic development in which the organs take form from the primary germ layers.
the study of carbon-containing compounds (typically containing chains of carbon atoms) and their properties.
the study of carbon-based compounds
the study of the compounds of carbon. (p. 813)
The study of compounds that contain carbon chemically bound to hydrogen, including synthesis, identification, modelling, and reactions of those compounds.
Organic chemistry is the study of compounds of carbon. There are a few exceptions, as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and carbonate salts are classified as inorganic compounds IF YOU CAME HERE FROM A DIFFERENT PAGE, CLICK ON THE BACK BUTTON TO GO BACK TO THE PAGE YOU WERE VIEWING.

Organic chemistry is a specific discipline within chemistry which involves the scientific study of the structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation (by synthesis or by other means) of chemical compounds consisting of primarily carbon and hydrogen, which may contain any number of other elements, including nitrogen, oxygen, halogens as well as phosphorus, silicon and sulfur.
