Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon compounds; inorganic chemistry is the chemistry of compounds of all elements other than carbon.
The general properties of carbon compounds are: 1. Most carbon compounds are non-electrolytes. 2. The reaction rates of carbon compounds are usually slow. 3. Many carbon compounds oxidize slowly in air but rapidly if heated. 4. Most carbon compounds are unstable at high temperatures.

and Plexiglas (or Lucite). .13-10 Polymers A polymer is a long chain of simple molecules (monomers) linked together. Teflon. Orlon. Some examples of polymers include Styrofoam. Polymers that contain the vinyl group are classed as vinyls. meaning it softens and can be shaped when heated but becomes rigid again on cooling.. Plexiglas is thermoplastic.

13-10 Polymers A copolymer is a polymer that consists of two different monomers. elastic polymers called elastomers. . Polyamides and polyesters are polymers produced by chemical reactions rather than by the polymerization of monomers. Dynel and Saran Wrap are examples. . rubber and neoprene are examples. Certain monomers that contain two double bonds in each molecule form flexible.

Instead. It should therefore be as flexible as a simple hydrocarbon chain. this structure appears to be connected entirely by single C-C or C-N bonds. Note that flexing in a covalent structure does not occur by bending bonds.13-14. Proteins The polypeptide chain forms a backbone structure in proteins: On first inspection. and the normal tetrahedral or trigonal planar bond angles are maintained. different shapes are obtained by torsional rotation about the axis of the bonds: .
