What is Catenation class 10th?


Friedrich Wöhler

Q. How was vitalism falsified?

Falsification of theories: the artificial synthesis of urea helped to falsify vitalism. Urea was discovered in urine in the 1720s and was assumed to be a product of the kidneys. At that time it was widely believed that organic compounds in plants and animals could only be made with the help of a “vital principle”.

Q. Why the number of organic compounds is very large?

Catenation: The unique property of the ‘C’ element to be able to form continuous links with other ‘C’ atoms through covalency called catenation, is one reason for the existence of a large number of organic compounds.

Q. Which element exhibits the property of Catenation to maximum and why?

Catenation can be defined as the self-linking of atoms of an element to form chains and rings.

Q. Why is the number of organic compounds nearly limitless?

Carbon can form a nearly limitless diversity of compounds. One reason for this is carbon’s ability to bind covalently with itself in long chains: In the above structure, each carbon atom (C) is surrounded by four single bonds. This is a consequence of carbon’s tendency to form four covalent bonds each.

Q. Where do organic compounds come from?

Most synthetically produced organic compounds are ultimately derived from petrochemicals consisting mainly of hydrocarbons, which are themselves formed from the high pressure and temperature degradation of organic matter underground over geological timescales.

Q. Do all organic compounds contain nitrogen?

Most organic compounds contain carbon, hydrogen, and sometimes other elements such as nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, or phosphorus. All living organisms contain carbon—even bacteria. … The compound contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.

Q. Does organic compounds can be produced artificially?

Today, most pure, organic compounds, or molecules that contains carbon, are artificially produced. However, there is an important subset of organic compounds that are still extracted from natural sources because they are too expensive to produce artificially.

Q. What does it mean if something is inorganic?

1a(1) : being or composed of matter other than plant or animal : mineral. (2) : forming or belonging to the inanimate world. b : of, relating to, or dealt with by a branch of chemistry concerned with substances not usually classed as organic.

Q. What is the most abundant element in the human body?
