Inorganic chemistry usage in chemical engineering

Inorganic chemistry deals with the synthesis and behaviour of inorganic and organometallic compounds. This field covers all chemical compounds except the myriad organic compounds (carbon based compounds) which are the subjects of organic chemistry. It has applications in every aspect of the chemical industry including catalysis, materials science, pigments, surfactants, coatings, medicine, fuel, and agriculture. Many inorganic compounds are ionic compounds, consisting of cations and anions joined by ionic bonding. Important classes of inorganic salts are the oxides, the carbonates, the sulfates and the halides. Many inorganic compounds are characterized by high melting points. Inorganic salts typically are poor conductors in the solid state. Inorganic compounds are found in nature as minerals. The simplest inorganic reaction is double displacement when in mixing of two salts the ions are swapped without a change in oxidation state. In redox reactions one reactant, the oxidant, lowers its oxidation state and another reactant, the reductant, has its oxidation state increased. Different classifications are : Coordination compounds , Main group compounds , Transition metal compounds , Organometallic compounds , Cluster compounds , Bioinorganic compounds , Solid state compounds.

Inorganic chemistry is the study of the formation, synthesis and properties of compounds that do not contain carbon-hydrogen bonds. Chemical substances containing carbon-hydrogen bonds are studied in organic chemistry. Organometallic chemistry combines aspects of inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry. Industrial inorganic chemistry includes subdivisions of the chemical industry that manufacture inorganic products on a large scale such as the heavy inorganics and fertilizers as well as segments of fine chemicals that are used to produce high purity inorganics on a much smaller scale.
