Organic chemistry is a growing subset of chemistry. To put it simply, it is the study of all carbon-based compounds; their structure, properties, and reactions and their use in synthesis.
The application of organic chemistry today can be seen everywhere you look, from the plastic making up components of your computer, to nylon which make up your clothes, to macromolecules and cells that make up your very body! Organic chemistry has expanded our world of knowledge and it is an essential part of the fields of biochemistry, biology, industry, nanotechnology, rocket science, and many more!
