Organic functions


Due to the large number of organic compounds that exist, it was necessary to group them into organic functions.

The substances were classified according to their similar properties and composition to improve the study of these compounds as well as inorganic compounds.

The main organic functions are listed below:

- hydrocarbon
- alcohol
- phenol
- aldehyde
- ketone
- ether
- ester
- carboxylic acid
- the mine
- amide
- nitrile
- halide

From now on we will study each of these functions, starting with hydrocarbons.
