Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic chemistry is the study of the structure, properties, and reactions of the chemical elements and their compounds, not including those classified as organic compounds (covalent carbon-based compounds).  This branch of chemistry is responsible for creating and characterizing a wide array of novel and useful substances, such as superconductors, semiconductors, chelating agents, chemotherapeutic agents, and a host of others.
