1 Chap 9 Organic Chemistry Organic chem was defined as molecules from life, but then urea was synthesized in 1828 and then organic was defined as chemistry dealing primarily with C and also N, O ad halogens. 1. Carbon is unique in that it can make for bonds and can bond with itself to make strong bonds. 2. Alkanes- contain carbon and hydrogen. a) simplest is methane CH 4 Add 1 carbon more to get ethane and so on. Draw stick figues. b) isomers- same molecular formula but different atom-atom connectivity. have different physical properties. Add each c, increase melting point 1-4 gas, 5-16 liquid. 17 more solid main chemical rxn they do is burning. C x H y O z + O 2 CO 2 + H 2 O gas wash moisture away from skin. In lungs can wash away fat soluble fat like molecules allowing lungs to fill with fluid-.
