Organic chemistry simply refers to the chemistry of the compounds of carbon or the chemistry of carbon-containing compounds, except for simple ones like carbonates, carbides, and oxides. On the other hand, inorganic chemistry is the chemistry of elements and the compounds which they form, plus the compounds of carbon such as carbides, carbonates, and oxides. In inorganic chemistry, this chemistry is based on the study of the various properties, reactions, compounds, preparation of the elements.

In contrast, the chemistry of the compounds of carbon is studied in relation to certain terms such as isomerization, stereo-chemistry, photochemistry, fermentation, hydrogenation, and polymerization. Both are important aspects of chemistry. Organic chemistry has to do with important chemical reactions as well as other biological reactions. Inorganic chemistry is also an important part of chemistry because it gives more information about all the elements and their uses. A chemist is expected to be good in the two aspects of chemistry.

Organic and inorganic chemistry are sub-disciplines within the subject of chemistry. In the study of inorganic chemistry, however, the focus is on carbon compounds and their derivatives. It is concerned with the scientific research of all chemical compounds except the carbon group. Under the umbrella of inorganic and organic chemistry, there is attention on variables such as composition, structure, properties, preparation, and the study of reactions.

Organic chemistry encompasses photochemistry, stereochemistry, polymerization, fermentation, and entails the study of life and related chemical reactions. Inorganic chemistry deals with electrochemistry, crystallography, atomic structure, and chemical bonding. Many products can be generated from it, including the improvement of cleaning products. Inorganic chemistry is essential because it’s the only discipline in the study of chemistry that investigates the variations between different atoms.
