Organic compounds are produced by living things while inorganic compounds are produced by a non-living process or with human intervention in a laboratory

Organic compounds are made from things which were once alive and, therefore, they contain carbon. Inorganic compounds, however, do not contain carbon.Carbon is an essential element in all organic compounds while inorganic compounds may or may not contain carbon.Organic compounds do not dissolve in water but dissolve in organic solvents. Most Inorganic compounds dissolve in water but not in organic solvents.Organic compounds have low melting and boiling points. Inorganic compounds have high melting and boiling points.Organic compounds form covalent bonds while inorganic compounds form ionic/electrovalent bonds.Organic compounds have color and odor while inorganic compounds are usually colourless and odorless.Organic compounds e.g. methane, ethane, acetylene, alcohols etc. Inorganic compounds e.g. carbon dioxide, sulphuric acid, salts etc.Organic compounds are produced by living things. Inorganic compounds are produced by non-living natural processes or by human intervention in the laboratory.The presence of carbon determines if a compound is organic or not. All organic compounds have carbon in them.

Inorganic compounds are a very interesting thing

Human skin is organic. Its also the largest organ in the human body.

There is no such compounds which are declared as important. Water molecule is one of the essential inorganic compounds to human, animals and plants.

Several inorganic compounds are found in the human body. These include apatite in bones, sodium, potassium, chlorides, bicarbonate, and phosphate. Calcium and magnesium are also found in the human body.

Vitamins belong to a the group called organic compounds. They are essential for human nutrition and necessary for healthy bodies and minds.

An organic molecule is a molecule which contains the element carbon. An inorganic molecule is the opposite. Almost all of the molecules that are inside the human body would be classified as organic molecules.

Glycogen (also known as human starch) is a polysaccharide of Glucose so it is an organic compound.

There is such a large percent of carbon in the human body because humans are organic, being made of organic compounds, which are compounds containing carbon and hydrogen.

Vitamins are organic compounds while minerals are inorganic and have a definite chemical composition. While some minerals are required by the human body, all vitamins are required by the human body for nutrition and health.

organic compounds in human body are lipids,enzymes,carbohydrates,nucleic acids,protiens etc.

Organic compounds have covalent bonds, and these compounds are the basis of life on Earth; the human body is composed of them.

nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon, oxygen

The 5 important organic compounds are LIPIDS, CARBOHYDRATES, PROTEINS, NUCLEIC ACID and most of all ENZYMES.

In the human body, the four most important groups of organic compounds are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids (such as RNA and DNA).

Yes, because, a major part of the human body like skin, blood, organs, cells, dna, etc are made of carbon compounds or organic compounds.

Hair is an organic compound. Human hair is made of keratin. So are finger nails, and much of the structure of the skin.

Basically, there are three accepted sources of organic compounds:1. carbonized organic matter2. living organisms3. invention/human ingenuitySource (see Related Link below).

Cortisone is large organic molecule found in human body. It has four carbon rings, one five membered and rest are six membered.

Carbon is the essential component of all organic compounds.

Ions. In the biological solutions of the human body, the solvent is water and the solutes may be inorganic or organic. As they dissolve, molecules break apart, releasing ions or molecules that become evenly spread out within the solution.

That depends on how you are using the words organic and inorganic:in the chemical sense, oat flour is organic because it is made of complex carbon compoundsin the food sense, oat flour will be organic or nonorganic depending on the conditions under which the oat crop was grownin the medical sense, this makes no sense at all as "organic" disorders are caused by injuries or malfunctions of parts of the human body not directly related to the usual causes of the diagnosed disorder (e.g. organic bipolar disorder might be caused by a head injury, a brain aneurysm, a tumor outside the brain producing abnormal levels of hormones, etc.)etc.
