3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

It is said that organic chemistry is the part of chemistry that in charge of the study of carbon-based compounds. This chemistry branch has deeply affected our life in the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, since it has improved natural materials and created new substances that have improved our health, increased welfare and production, as well as the utility of the products currently employed.

It is estimated that 95% of the products that surround us in our daily life are organic: plastics, clothes, soaps, detergents, deodorants, medicines, perfumes, paper, ink, paints, etc. Even we are made of organic molecules.

On the other hand, the organic chemical industry plays a very important role in the world economy and affects many aspects of our life with its products, due to the great variety of them and their usefulness.

The objective of this course is to show the sources of organic products, their preparation from these sources, and their industrial applications and in everyday life. It will also show the current and future evolution of the organic chemical industry, as well as its relationship with the environment, pollution and conservation.
