Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic chemistry is concerned with inorganic compound properties and actions, which involve rocks, minerals, and organometallic compounds. Catalysts, pigments, coatings, surfactants, drugs, oils and more are classified as inorganic substances. They also have high melting points and different characteristics of high or low electrical conductivity which make them useful for specific purposes. If organic chemistry is known as the chemistry of hydrocarbon compounds and their derivatives, inorganic chemistry may be quite broadly represented as the chemistry of noncarbon compounds or as the chemistry of everything else.
