Inorganic compounds

Inorganic compounds are chemical substances that do not contain carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds. They are typically derived from minerals or non-living sources and are essential in various scientific disciplines. Unlike organic compounds, which are primarily composed of carbon and hydrogen, inorganic compounds can consist of a wide range of elements, including metals, non-metals, and metalloids. Inorganic compounds exhibit diverse properties and behaviors due to the different elements and their arrangements within the compound. They can have varying solubilities, melting points, conductivity, and reactivity. These compounds play crucial roles in many industrial processes, such as catalysis, energy production, and materials synthesis.
