inorganic

Definition

In general, substances of mineral origin (such as ceramics, metals, synthetic plastics, as well as water) as opposed to those of biological or botanical origin (such as crude oil, coal, wood, as well as food). With certain exceptions, inorganic substances do not contain carbon or its compounds. In scientific terms, no clear line divides organic and inorganic chemistry.
