The commonly accepted guideline is that organic compounds are generally compounds that nearly always contain carbon-hydrogen bonds, while everything else that does not is classified as inorganic compounds.

Organic
1.carbon is basic element of an organic compounds.
2.Many are gases, liquids or solids
3.Generally found in living matter and Biological in nature, i.e., animals and plants.
4.Produces more complex set of products during reaction.The reation of oeganic compounds are usually slow.
5.organic compounds are studied as hydrocarbon and derivative of hydrocarbons. Example : ROH, RX,RNH2,RCHO etc..

InOrganic
1.May contain carbon. Contain metal and other elements. Does not contain carbon-hydrogen bonds.
2.Most are solids
3.Generally obtained from non-living matter and Mineral in nature, i.e., minerals.
4.Produces less complex set of products during reaction.The reation of inorganic compounds are fast.
5.inorganic compounds are studied as a acid, base and salt.Example ...H2SO4....NAOH.....NA2CO3...etc
