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

An organic compound is any member of a large class of chemical compounds whose molecules contain carbon and hydrogen; therefore, carbides, carbonates, carbon oxides and elementary carbon are not organic. The study of organic compounds is termed organic chemistry, and since it is a vast collection of chemicals (over half of all known 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 definition of inorganic compounds often includes all metal-containing compounds, even those found in living systems. Although 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

The compounds which are majorly containes ''carbon'' in addition to H,N ,O,S etc is called''Organic Compounds''.

ex:CH4,C6H6 etc

The compounds which are formed by all the elements except carbon is called ''In organic compounds''.

ex:H2O,NH3,KMnO4
