e primary difference between organic compounds and inorganic compounds is that organic compounds always contain carbon while most inorganic compounds do not contain carbon. Also, 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.
table sugar or sucrose, C12H22O11
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.
