(Reguidit frae Inorganic)

An inorganic compoond is a compoond that is nae considered "organic". Inorganic compoonds are tradeetionally viewed as bein synthesized bi the agency o geological seestems. In contrast, organic compoonds are foond in biological seestems. Organic chemists tradeetionally refer tae ony molecule containin carbon as an organic compoond an bi default this means that inorganic chemistry deals wi molecules lackin carbon.[1]
