Inorganic chemistry deals with the synthesis and behavior of inorganic and organometallic compounds and covers all chemical compounds except the myriad organic compounds (carbon-based compounds), which are the subjects of organic chemistry. Inorganic chemistry has applications in every aspect of the chemical industry, including catalysis, materials science, pigments, surfactants, coatings, medications, fuels, and agriculture.
