# Are the following compounds organic or inorganic - C_2H_2, C_6H_4CH, C_6H_6, NH_3, H_2O, CH_3CHO, NH_4OH, and B_6O?

Well, what does an organic compound always contain?

#### Explanation:

I'll split them into organic and inorganic compounds:

ul(mathbf("Organic")color(white)(aaaaaaaaaaaa)mathbf("Inorganic")

${C}_{2} {H}_{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a} N {H}_{3}$

${C}_{6} {H}_{4} C H \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a} {H}_{2} O$

${C}_{6} {H}_{6} \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a} N {H}_{4} O H$

$C {H}_{3} C H O \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a} {B}_{6} O$

Do you see a pattern between organic compounds and inorganic compounds?

Organic compounds are those compounds that has majorly Carbon to Carbon bonds, while Inorganic compounds does not..

#### Explanation:

Organic compounds can also contain Hydrogen, Oxygen, Anime, but the major factor is the presence of Carbon to Carbon bonds.

$C - C - > \text{Bonds}$

Examples;

${C}_{2} {H}_{2} , {C}_{6} {H}_{4} C H , {C}_{6} {H}_{6} , C {H}_{3} C H O$

Inorganic compounds are simply compounds that is not an Organic Compound,it can also contain Carbon, but there is no Carbon to Carbon bonds present.

Examples;

$N {H}_{3} , {H}_{2} O , N {H}_{4} O H , {B}_{6} O , \textcolor{b l u e}{C {O}_{2} , C O}$
