Subject: Organic Chemistry
What are the benefits of Organic compounds to human life? Moreover, what is the significance of this field?
The most crucial part which comes initially is the 'Total Synthesis' of certain molecules, basically Research! Research boosts the production of medicines, and medicines have become an important part in our lives. The importance of medicines in today's world crisis (Corona) is well known. This all would not have been possible without the study of Organic Chemistry. Not only it is restricted to this but, the products we use in our day to day lives like shampoo, gasoline, perfumes, lotion, drugs etc is the result of study of Organic Chemistry.
Subject: Inorganic Chemistry
Why is Inorganic field so important when it comes to Chemistry?
As we know 'WATER' is an universal solvent and no-one can live without it, is an inorganic compound. Similarly, Oxygen, Carbon dioxide, and many such gases comes under this. The field of chemistry is incomplete without Inorganic stream. The most crucial part is the periodic table published by Mendeleev which forms the basis of all elements and ultimately our life!
Why do we get tears in our eyes, all the time we cut an onion?
Now, there is an enzyme present in an onion which converts its amino acid into sulfenic acid. This unstable sulfenic acid rearranges itself into a complex oxide form which gets into the air and comes in contact with our eyes. The lachrymal glands present in our eyes gets irritated and produces tears.
