Unit 12 – Organic Chemistry – Some Basic Principles And Techniques

In the previous unit you have learnt that the element carbon has the unique property called catenation due to which it forms covalent bonds with other carbon atoms.

It also forms covalent bonds with atoms of other elements like hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulphur, phosphorus and halogens. The resulting compounds are studied under a separate branch of chemistry called organic chemistry.

This unit incorporates some basic principles and techniques of analysis required for understanding the formation and properties of organic compounds.
