Synthetic Organic Chemistry for Chemists
Since the beginning of synthetic organic chemistry it paved way to chemists to the development and impact for synthetic biology.
In the start of nineteenth century chemist Friedrich Wohler then discovered that he can produce urea without using the production from kidney and excretion via urine in the laboratory, he was then so overjoyed and wrote about this to his fellow colleague. This became a stir-up news for everyone around and yet it progresses as well and built countless molecular structure that have been useful even up until now. Synthetic chemistry organic is still going on since then and producing different kinds of molecular structure for additional chemical reactions or for additional medicinal properties.
What Composes Synthetic Organic Chemistry?
Synthetic organic chemistry is a man-made compound that contains carbon atoms; basically because organic chemicals are deemed organic because of its component, carbon atoms. There are different kind of starting materials for synthetic organic chemistry and it could be inorganic compounds or organic compounds. Organic compounds are those that came from a living source, it could be from humans, from plants, or from animals. While inorganic compounds are those that came from nonliving sources like plastic, rubber, and so on. To make inorganic compounds useful for the use of living source is the idea of synthesizing chemicals.
There are Two Kinds of Synthesis:
- Total Synthesis – is the process where in inorganic compounds are the starting materials and they have target molecules that they aim to discover new route for existing ones or for those that doesn’t have routes they’d be able to create a feasible route. They also focus on creating new chemical reaction or chemical reagents.
- Semi-Synthesis or Partial Chemical Synthesis – is the process where in they use chemical compounds from organic chemicals to mainly create or produce novel compounds which could have chemical or medical properties that later on be part in the growing pharmaceutical industry as well.
