Organic compounds:What ARE they?

Post  Thesci3141 on Tue Dec 28, 2010 10:47 pm

Organic compounds are now considered compounds with one or more carbon atoms.However there are some exceptions. Graphite,diamond,carbon dioxide,sodium carbonate,Cac2(calcium carbide) are a few that are derived from minerals and are considered inorganic. By the way. Something that has always "irked" me is some of the ads for vitamines etc. that are proclaimed completly organic because it is derived from nature (living things), and at an inflated price. If pure, synthesized and extracted from nature compounds are no different except for C14 content! Don't be fooled!
