Example Organic chemistry is the study of molecules that are carbon based. Since most compounds on earth are made with this carbon backbone, this is a large branch of study in the world of chemistry (Van Kessel et. al. 2008). We will be studying many of these compounds in grade 12 chemistry class. Their uses vary including: fuels, plastics and fibres (Bertrand 2012). The most spectacular reaction with organic molecules is combustion (Anonymous I).
