Is there anything that is both organic and inorganic?
Jul 6th, 2014

The primary difference between organic compounds and inorganic compounds is that organic compounds always contain carbon while most inorganic compounds do not contain carbon. Also, almost all organic compounds contain carbon-hydrogen or C-H bonds.

Examples of Organic Compounds or Molecules

Molecules associated with living organisms are organic. These include nucleic acids, fats, sugars, proteins, enzymes and many fuels.
  • DNA
  • table sugar or sucrose, C12H22O11
  • benzene, C6H6
  • methane, CH4

Examples of Inorganic Compounds

Inorganics include salts, metals, substances made from single elements and any other compounds that don't contain carbon bonded to hydrogen.
  • table salt or sodium chloride, NaCl
  • carbon dioxide, CO2
  • diamond (pure carbon)
