Inorganic chemistry deals with the chemistry of all the elements, in the periodic table, and their compounds except that of carbon. It is a broad and complex field which overlaps with other branches of science and is growing at a rapid pace. 

The study of inorganic chemistry includes the extraction or synthesis, chemical properties and applications of metals, metalloids and non metals as well as their compounds. It involves interpreting, correlating, and predicting the properties and structures of an enormous range of materials. We some time lend the physical principles from other areas of science to understand the structure, characterization and properties of inorganic substances.

The word "inorganic" means non-living. However the study of inorganic chemistry encompasses the role of inorganic compounds both in material and biological sciences. Some of the important branches of modern inorganic chemistry are: coordination chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, organometallics etc.,

You can find various topics from inorganic chemistry from the list given below.
