Organic compounds are made up of hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and a few other elements. But, the number of organic compounds is far bigger than inorganic compounds that do not form bonds.
Carbon is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6. It is a versatile element and is found in many different chemical compounds. The versatile nature of carbon can be best understood with its features such as tetravalency and catenation.
Tetravalency: Carbon has a valency of four so it is capable of bonding with four other atoms of carbon or atoms of some other mono-valent element.
Catenation: The property of carbon element due to which its atom can join one another to form long carbon chains is called catenation.
