1. What is the Vital force theory? The Vital force theory－ Long ago, people observed the differences between compounds that were derived from living things and those that were not. There seemed to be an impassable gap between the properties of the two groups. Someone proposed the vital force theory to explain the difference. The theory said that there was a something called a vital force that dwelled within the organic material that did not exist in the nonorganic materials. However, to echo the words of President Ronald Reagan, it was "only" a theory.2. What is the first organic compound? 第一個有機化合物似乎沒有人能說得出來，但是第一個合成出來的有機化合物就是尿素了！因為以前的人總認為有機物是從生物中才能合成出來，所以生物又稱為有機體。而有機體中有百分之八十以上都是有機物，所以應該沒有文獻記載第一個有機化合物是什麼東西！
