Organic Chemistry/Biology

posted by .

My text has a review of some chemistry before getting into the biology bit. I have come to a question "what are 3 characteristics/features of an organic compound." My book seems to only have the general they all have carbon. The rest goes into depth about the different classes and hydrocarbons and stuff. Can anyone tell me some cool stuff about organic compounds other than they have carbon? Or, point me to a site with this info?
