Sample text

Methane is the product of the anaerobic (without air) decomposition of organic matter by bacteria. The natural gas we use today was formed by the decomposition of organic material millions of years ago. Hydrocarbons such as methane are discussed in Chapter 4. • Ethanol, the alcohol present in beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages, is formed by the fermentation of sugar, quite possibly the oldest example of organic synthesis. indd 2 10/15/09 9:02:43 AM Some Representative Organic Molecules Cl Cl C F Cl trichlorofluoromethane 3 is identical to the ethanol produced by fermentation.

What does this mean for first- and second-row elements? A first-row element like hydrogen can accommodate two electrons around it. This would make it like the noble gas helium at the end of the same row. A second-row element is most stable with eight valence electrons around it like neon. Elements that behave in this manner are said to follow the octet rule. There are two different kinds of bonding: ionic bonding and covalent bonding. • Ionic bonds result from the transfer of electrons from one element to another.

Indd 3 10/15/09 9:02:47 AM 4 Prologue • AZT, the abbreviation for azidodeoxythymidine, is a drug that treats human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Also known by its generic name zidovudine, AZT represents a chemical success to a different challenge: synthesizing agents that combat viral infections. O H N O CH3 H H N O H H H C HO H H N3 H AZT Other complex organic compounds having interesting properties are capsaicin and DDT. • Capsaicin, one member of a group of compounds called vanilloids, is responsible for the characteristic spiciness of hot peppers.
