the study of carbon compounds
organic molecules that are composed of only carbon and hydrogen
compounds with the same formula but different structure
compounds that have the same molecular formula but differ in the covalent arrangements of their atoms
Compounds that have the same molecular formula but differ in the spatial arrangements of their atoms.
molecules that are mirror images of each other
components of organic molecules that are most commonly involved in chemical reactions
An adenine-containing nucleoside triphosphate that releases free energy when its phosphate bonds are hydrolyzed. This energy is used to drive endergonic reactions in cells.
