Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon compounds. All organic compounds contain carbon; however, there are some compounds of carbon that are not classified as organic. For example, salts such as carbonates (e.g., Na CO , CaCO ) and cyanides (e.g., NaCN, KCN) are usually designated as inorganic. Perhaps a more useful description might be: Organic compounds are compounds of carbon that usually contain hydrogen and that may also contain other elements such as oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, or halogen (F, Cl, Br, or I). In any case, there are very few carbon compounds that are not organic, while there are millions that are.
