Chemical bonds Current Lecture I. What is Organic Chemistry? All living things are made of organic chemicals (proteins that make up hair, DNA, foods, medicines) Chemical structures may look different but they have similarities Chemical families have similar uses, for instance gasoline and propane are ‘related’ and are both used for fuel II. Origins of Organic Chemistry Foundations of organic chemistry from the mid 1700s, with compounds being obtained from plants It was thought that organic compounds contained a ‘vital force’ because they were from living sources Mid-1800s – it was identified that there were no fundamental differences between organic and inorganic substances 90% of organic compounds contain carbon This class will focus on H, C, N, O, F, Cl, Br, I (and sometimes P & S) III. Atomic structure, atomic number and atomic mass These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture.
