The idea that organic compounds arise only in organisms, was disproved when chemists synthesized these compounds
The view that all natural phenomena are governed by physical and chemical laws
organic molecules consisting of only carbon and hydrogen (fats have hydrocarbon components); can also undergo reactions that release large amount of energy (reacts vigorously w/ oxygen)
special class of hydrocarbons (ex: Benzene C6H6), have a smell, atoms arranged in a ring; used to produce polyester and nylon (industrial uses); aromatic amino acids: Phenyalanine, Tryotophan, Tyrosine
compounds with same molecular formula but different structure and properties
same covalent arrangements but differ in arrangements
different covalent arrangements of their atoms
isomers that are mirror images of each other
primary used for treatment of anti-nausea and as a sedative; enantiomer caused birth defects
