# What is an example of inorganic matter?

May 21, 2018

Calcium compounds, silicon compounds, metallic compounds, etc.

#### Explanation:

Inorganic matter is just anything that is not organic matter. Organic matter is any molecules and compounds that have carbon bonded with other elements in them, such as glucose $\left({C}_{6} {H}_{12} {O}_{6}\right)$, amine compounds $\left(R - N {H}_{2}\right)$,...

So, an example of inorganic matter would be hexamminecobalt(III) chloride, with the formula $\left[C o {\left(N {H}_{3}\right)}_{6}\right] C {l}_{3}$.
