Chemistry Usage in Chemical Engineering
Inorganic chemistry handles with the synthesis and behaviour of inorganic and organometallic compounds. This field covers all chemical compounds but not the carbon-based compounds which are the subjects of organic chemistry. It has applications in every aspect of the chemical industry catalysis, material science, pigments, surfactants, coatings, medicine, fuel, agriculture. And many inorganic compounds are ionic compounds, consisting of cat-ions and anions joined by ionic bonding. Inorganic compounds are naturally found in nature as minerals.
