Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is the study of compounds of carbon. Although many organic compounds are isolated from plant and animal sources, most of them can be synthesized. All the organic compounds contain the element carbon.Compounds of carbon with hydrogen are called hydrocarbons.  Apart from hydrogen, organic compounds may also contains carbon atom bonded with sulphur, nitrogen, phosphorus and halogen atoms.

Although Organic Chemistry in itself is quite vast but at IIT JEE level it deals with General Organic Chemistry i.e. basics organic chemistry.It starts with the concept of Hybridization, IUPAC Nomenclature, Isomerism, Resonance, Hyperconjugation, etc. Stereoisomerism is a critical part which becomes a bottleneck for most of the students. These concepts are used in almost every reaction mechanisms which are a part of topics like Hydrocarbons, Halides, Alcohols & Phenols, Aldehydes & Ketones, Carboxylic acids and derivatives and hence these are basics of organic chemistry. Named Reactions are like drivers direction for students and maximum come from the chapter of Aldehydes & Ketones, which is no less than a climax of a movie.Organic chemistry has at least 30-40% weight-age in the IIT JEE chemistry paper. It is the most critical part of chemistry where scoring is important to occupy a high berth in AIR of IIT JEE.
