I, ____________ student of ___________________ is doing project report entitled “Organic Compounds” being submitted to ___________________is an original piece of work done by me.
Organic Chemistry : The compounds obtained from living organism i.e. animals and plants were collectively called organic compound. In early days it was considered impossible to prepare any organic compound in laboratory. But a German Chemist friedrich wholer succeeded in preparing an organic compound urea (NH2 CONH2) from ammonium cyanate accidentally. After it many other organic compounds are prepared. Organic compounds contains mainly Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen alongwith Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Sulphur. The study of Hydro Carbon and other compounds regrading their derivatives of Hydrocarbon is called organic chemistry. It is the separate branch of chemistry because of the large number of organic compounds, their complexicity and their isomers. The atom or group of atoms which largely determines the properties of the organic compounds are called functional group.
