Properties of Organic and Inorganic Compounds?

Answer

Organic compounds are chemical compounds containing the element, carbon (C). A compound is a molecule made up of two or more elements. Comparison of the differing properties of the two types of compounds follow. Organic compounds can be gasses, liquids, or solids, whereas inorganic compounds are mostly solid. Organic compounds are generally found in the living and inorganic are not. Organic compounds are considered biological and inorganic are considered mineral. Organic compounds include proteins, fats, enzymes (a type of protein that acts as a catalyst), nucleic acids (proteins found in DNA and RNA), sugars, and fuels. Inorganic compounds include salts, metals, any substance that doesn't contain a C-H bond, and substances composed of single elements.
