Difference between oraganic and inoraganic compounds, Chemistry

An organic compound is any member of a large class of chemical compounds which molecules have carbon and hydrogen; thus, carbides, carbonates, carbon oxides and elementary carbon are inorganic. The study of organic compounds is termed organic chemistry, and hence it is a vast collection of chemicals (over half of all called chemical compounds), systems have been devised to classify organic compounds.

Examples: Acid anhydrides
Acyl halides
Alcohols
Aldehydes
Alkanes
Alkenes
Amides
Amines
Aromatics
Azo compounds
Carboxylic acids
Esters
Ethers
Haloalkanes
Imines
Ketones
Nitriles
Nitro compounds
Organometallic compounds
Phenols
Polymers, including all plastics
Thiols

An inorganic compound is a chemical compound that is not an organic compound. Inorganic compounds come principally from mineral sources of non-biological origin. The modern description of inorganic compounds often haves all metal-containing compounds, even those found in living systems. Though most carbon compounds are classed as organic, cyanide salts, carbon oxides and carbonates are usually considered to be inorganic.

Examples: Minerals, such as salt, asbestos, silicates, ...
Metals and their alloys, like iron, copper, aluminium, brass, bronze, ...
Compounds involving non-metallic elements, like silicon, phosphorus, chlorine, oxygen, for example water
Metal complexes

In organic we study about compounds of Carbon where as in inorganic we study about compounds of other elements.
