What is organic chemistry all about?
Learning Organic chemistry is like learning a new language in a new country. How do I know this? I have done both.
A unique aspect of this type of chemistry is that, unlike general chemistry, it requires no math. Absolutely none!
What is it all about then?
First, the students learn the basic dictionary of organic chemistry, how to name and draw various organic molecules. Then, they learn that all of the reactions happen through the movement of electrons, and therefore knowing how to move these electrons around is quite essential.
Many molecules are three dimensional, and knowing how to draw their correct orientation and how to determine it becomes important as well.
Once, the basic language is mastered we move on to reactions. Organic Chemistry is basically a science of
