Carbon compounds

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Carbon compounds (Chem) See under Carbon.
    • Carbon compounds (Chem) those compounds consisting largely of carbon, commonly produced by animals and plants, and hence called organic compounds, though their synthesis may be effected in many cases in the laboratory.
