Course Summary
All too often I am asked - Organic Chemistry Who needs it?- Because for many of us, organic chemistry is a subject from long ago and far away. For others, it is a topic we have learned on the job, having come from other academic fields into our industry. Regardless of which of the two describes your particular situation, the answer to the question “Who needs it?” is we all do. Organic chemistry employs a language that allows us to clearly and precisely define our products, raw materials and processes used to make them.

This course offers a review of the concepts of organic chemistry applied to raw materials the formulator uses every day. Understanding the chemistry makes understanding the application in formulation easier. – Tony O’Lenick
