Organic Chemistry is the branch of chemistry in which covalent carbon compounds and their reactions are studied. A wide variety of classes of compounds such as vitamins, drugs, natural and synthetic fibers, as well as carbohydrates, peptides, and fats consist of organic molecules. Organic chemists determine the structures of organic molecules, study their various reactions, and develop procedures for the synthesis of organic substances.
