What are some properties of organic and inorganic compounds?

Answer

One of the properties of organic and inorganic chemistry is that organic compounds always contain carbon while most inorganic ones do not. Organic compounds are those that are produced by living things, while inorganic compounds are produced through non-living processes.

Organic compounds are often extracted from natural sources, which sometimes makes them expensive to produce. Sugar and Vitamin B12 are examples of organic compounds. Other examples include fatty acids, lipids, hormones and oils. There are very few organic compounds that do not have at least one hydrogen-carbon bond. Inorganic compounds usually have high melting points and are usually very colorful in contrast to other compounds. Inorganic compounds contain no life. Examples include rocks, cement, metal, diamonds and salt.
