Inorganic  chemistry deals mostly with non-carbon compounds, although the  chemistry of carbonates, cyanides, cyanates, thiocyanates, metal  carbonyls, etc. falls in its domain. An inorganic chemist is interested  in the periodic table and how the elements behave according to its  predictive powers. In contrast, organic compounds contain a  carbon-hydrogen bond, preferably a covalent bond. Or they can be a  substitutional derivatives, e.g. fluorocarbons. There are fields that border both disciplines, such  as organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry.
