Organic chemistry is the study of the structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation of carbon-containing compounds, which include not only hydrocarbons but also compounds with any number of other elements, including hydrogen (most compounds contain at least one carbon–hydrogen bond), nitrogen, oxygen, halogens, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur. This branch of chemistry was originally limited to compounds produced by living organisms but has been broadened to include human-made substances such as plastics. The range of application of organic compounds is enormous and also includes, but is not limited to, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, food, explosives, paints, and cosmetics.

An oil painting of a chemist (by Henrika Šantel in 1932)

Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with elements and compounds composed of atoms, molecules and ions: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other substances.[1][2][3][4]

In the scope of its subject, chemistry occupies an intermediate position between physics and biology.[5] It is sometimes called the central science because it provides a foundation for understanding both basic and applied scientific disciplines at a fundamental level.[6] For example, chemistry explains aspects of plant chemistry (botany), the formation of igneous rocks (geology), how atmospheric ozone is formed and how environmental pollutants are degraded (ecology), the properties of the soil on the moon (cosmochemistry), how medications work (pharmacology), and how to collect DNA evidence at a crime scene (forensics).

Chemistry addresses topics such as how atoms and molecules interact via chemical bonds to form new chemical compounds. There are two types of chemical bonds: 1. primary chemical bonds e.g covalent bonds, in which atoms share one or more electron(s); ionic bonds, in which an atom donates one or more electrons to another atom to produce ions (cations and anions); metallic bonds and 2. secondary chemical bonds e.g. hydrogen bonds; Van der Waals force bonds, ion-ion interaction, ion-dipole interaction etc.

Hi !

If you are a....

- High school student trying to keep up with your chemistry class and its many exams,
- University/College student who wants to pass his/her Chem 101 class with an A+,
- Or just someone who is interested in chemistry and wants to expand his/her knowledge of chemical reactions...

Then, on behalf of the AKADEMIA group I (Adib, founder of AKADEMIA and your instructor for this course) welcome you to join our students worldwide!

[ We see a lot of students who are interested in Chemistry, but don't know how to effectively study it and eventually fail their classes and ruin their GPA. Well, we are hear to help you with that! ]

In this course, you will going to learn everything you need about Stoichiometry and its concepts (the list of the items is above). Stoichiometry is an important chapter in any General Chemistry course which determines the relationship between Reactants & Products in a Chemical Reaction. (we will be back with more courses covering other chapters soon!)

After each lecture you're going to practice what you just learned in a step by step example. The examples have been designed for you to learn everything in action! Also, we have tried to come up with examples that cover every style of stoichiometric problems that exist to help with your exams!

By the end, you will have a firm grasp over the concepts and hopefully a mastery at solving any stoichiometric problems. This will give you a full understanding of how chemical reactions work and greatly help you in other chapters of general chemistry as well!

Pharmaceutical (medicinal) chemistry is concerned with the design (drug design) and synthesis of biologically active molecules. The aim is to gain new chemical molecules that could enable the discovery of new pharmaceuticals or optimize already known drug structures, thereby to expand the portfolio of chemical drugs.

Pharmaceutical chemistry is the study of drugs, and it involves drug development. Pharmaceutical chemistry work is usually done in a lab setting.

Pharmaceutical chemistry involves drug chemistry, quality assurance, metabolism, pharmacology, analytical techniques, and cures, and remedies for disease. Pharmaceutical chemistry leads to careers in pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, drug development, and research facilities.

There are specific areas of study from chemistry that are important to pharmacists. The most important part of chemistry that is used in pharmacy is reactions and compounds. ... Pharmacists have to know when two compounds make a new medicine and when two compounds make an explosion, so they don't explode anything.
