Comparison between Organic and Inorganic Compounds


































































Organic Compounds



Inorganic Compounds



*Organic Compounds are composed of few elements only.C, H,O,N,S,P and halogens are the most common.



* Inorganic Compounds are composed of all the known elements.



*They are generally found in living matter, i.e., animals and plants.



*They are generally obtained from non-living matter, i.e., minerals.



*They are usually gases, liquids or solids having low melting points.



*They are usually solids having high melting and boiling points.



*These, being covalent compounds, are generally insoluble in water and other polar solvents. These are fairly soluble in non-polar solvents.



*These, being electrovalent compounds, are generally soluble in water and other polar solvents. However, these are insoluble in non-polar solvents.



*The number of these compounds is very large, i.e., well over five million organic compounds are known. Every year thousands of new compounds are added to the existing list.



*The number of these compounds is small, i.e. about one lakh inorganic compounds are known. Their number has become somewhat fixed as new compounds are rarely discovered.



*They are generally volatile and inflammable.



*They are generally non-volatile and non-combustible.



*Their solutions are non- conductors of electricity.



* Their solutions are good- conductors of electricity.



*Chemical reactions are molecular and slow. The yields are poor due to side reactions.



*Chemical reactions are ionic and fast. The yields are quantitative and there is no side reaction.



*They exhibit the phenomenon of isomerism.



*The co-ordination compounds show the phenomenon of isomerism only.



*They have been classified into many classes on the basis of functional groups. Each class is represented by a general formula and the members show similar properties. Each class is known as homologous series.



*Homologous series are not found. The compounds are mainly divided as acids, bases and salts.



*Some compounds are highly complex and have high molecular masses. These complex compounds are stable.



*Inorganic compounds are less complex. Comparatively a complex compound is generally less stable.

What is meant by ozonolysis?
 
 
Hello Prabhakar Ozonolysis is the cleavage of an alkene or alkyne with ozone to form organic compounds in which the multiple carbon–carbon bond has been replaced by a double bond to oxygen. ...

This form of isomerism arises when the counter ion in a complex salt is itself a potential ligand and can displace a ligand which can then become the counter ion. Example: [Co(NH 3 ) 5 SO 4 ...

These isomers result from the interchange of ions inside and outside the coordination sphere. For example, the red violet [Co(NH3)5Br]SO4 and the red [Co(NH3)5SO4]Br are ionization isomers....
