Inorganic chemistry

  • inorganic chemistry
  • A branch of chemistry dealing with the chemical reactions and properties of all inorganic matter.
Abstract from DBPedia
    Inorganic chemistry deals with synthesis and behavior of inorganic and organometallic compounds. This field covers chemical compounds that are not carbon-based, which are the subjects of organic chemistry. The distinction between the two disciplines is far from absolute, as there is much overlap in the subdiscipline of organometallic chemistry. It has applications in every aspect of the chemical industry, including catalysis, materials science, pigments, surfactants, coatings, medications, fuels, and agriculture.

    無機化学(むきかがく、(英: inorganic chemistry)とは、研究対象として元素、単体および無機化合物を研究する化学の一分野である。通常有機化学の対概念として無機化学が定義されている為、非有機化合物を研究対象とする化学と考えて差し支えない。
