Homework Help: Organic CHemistry: Improving existing products

  1. May 26, 2010 #1
    Can anyone provide and briefly explain 2 examples of how organic chemistry can be used to improve existing products, and thus provide solutions to newly identified health or environmental problems?
    One example I was given was unleaded instead of leaded gasoline, but I need 2 others!

    Drug research is essentially organic chemistry.

    Biodegradable polymers versus non-biodegradable polymers. Polymerization is pretty much in organic chemistry's domain.

    I believe that BASF has an ad campaign that states, "We don't make the products you use. We make the products you use better."
