Topic: Physical Science > Chemistry > Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic chemistry is a branch of chemistry that studies inorganic compounds, which include minerals, metals, and nonmetals. It focuses on the properties, structures, synthesis, and reactions of these compounds, as well as their applications in various fields, such as materials science, environmental science, and bioinorganic chemistry. Inorganic chemists study the behavior and properties of elements and their compounds, and often work with elements from the periodic table that are not carbon-based.
