Talk:Compounds of carbon
|WikiProject Chemistry||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
Could you be more clear about the defining difference between what is considered the organic and the inorganic chemistry of carbon, please? -- The Anome
I don't think there is a defining distinction, but it probably covers carbon compounds not including chains of carbon.
In that case, shouldn't the study of allotropes of carbon be "organic chemistry" instead of "inorganic chemistry"? Because all three forms of allotropes contain chains of carbon. Wilsonbond 21:57, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
- Organic compound says that the usual criterion is the presence of the C-H bond. 22.214.171.124 10:16, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
