there are a million answers to this, but what comes to mind as some of the biggest ones?

I have to research a few of these, preferably something has has improved existing products to make them better for our health/the environment.

One big one is unleaded instead of leaded gasoline.

Any other major ones come to mind?

thanks for any input

Just about every pharmaceutical compound out there....
 
i would also consider polymer chemistry to be one of the greatest contributions of organic chemistry...there are an uncountable number of things made from them.

I use soap, plastics, cook with oils, put waxes in my hair, take pharmaceuticals, drive my car, the list goes on.
