The Six Main Branches of Chemistry
(what stuff is made of)
What one element off of the periodic table does a compound have to have to be “organic”?
When structures have the same number of Carbons, but are structurally put together differently, they are called…
Inorganic Chemistry is the study of
compounds that do not contain Carbon
How do you determine if a compound contains Carbon?
Look for “C” in the formula
Physical Chemistry deals
with properties that can be measured.
Organic compounds and the processes they go through.
On the molecular level, they research
Structure and Function
Photosynthesis / Kreb’s Cycle
Analytical Chemistry tells
“What” we have
“How much” we have
IR = Infrared Spectroscopy
NMR = Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
IR = can be solid, liquid or gas
NMR = must be liquid
