Another way of classifying chemical compounds…
In science, organic compounds contain carbon (C), and usually hydrogen (H)
Sometimes other types of atoms are also attached, including: oxygen, halogens, and nitrogen
Inorganic compounds do not contain carbon with three exceptions:
Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide
Compounds containing cyanide (CN-) and carbonate (CO3-) ions
Acids containing C—these can be identified because H is written before the C!
form petroleum and plastics
The acetaminophen molecule:
the active ingredient in Tylenol
ORGANIC---DNA is has a sugar backbone, which consists of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen
ORGANIC--- oils and fats are long-chain carbon compounds, which are used by living things as a way of storing energy
NOT! Sulphuric acid (H2SO4) is the strong acid found in car batteries, but doesn’t contain carbon and isn’t organic
ORGANIC! Starch is produced by plants as a way of storing sugars that they don’t need right away
Copper (II) Sulphate
NOT! Copper (II) sulphate is a beautiful blue crystal, but does not contain carbon and is definitely not organic!
Acetic Acid (Vinegar)
Each black ball represent C… Each white ball represents H…
The red ball represents O…
This is Ethanol! (alcohol group -0H)
Methylisocyanate- a valuable synthetic component for biology CH3N=C=S
Heme- the iron-containing component of hemoglobin, C34H32FeN4O4
