Carbon is the foundation of all life on Earth. Most chemicals that contain carbon are called organic compounds. The science that studies these is organic chemistry, and the study of chemical reactions in living organisms is biochemistry. This book, part of a new series that introduces the essentials of chemistry, looks at these vital subjects. Numerous diagrams, features, and key "Science Words" enhance understanding of basic science principles, and "Try This" panels outline experiments that can be undertaken as a first step to further practical investigations.
