Difference between M.Sc. Organic Chemistry and M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry


Chemistry is an enormous branch of Science that involves the study of composition of matter, their chemical properties and reactions. Chemistry has mainly two sub divisions. They are Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. M.Sc. Organic Chemistry is concerned with the study of properties, manufacture and applications of Carbon containing compounds. However, M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry is all about the study of the remaining elements in the periodic table other than Carbon.

M.Sc. Organic Chemistry course and career opportunities

Graduates in Chemistry can pursue the Master’s program in Organic Chemistry. Through the course, aspirants may be able to study the different carbon compounds and their applications in the day-to-day life. Various Universities and institutes offer the different postgraduate courses in Organic Chemistry. On completion of the M.Sc. Organic Chemistry, aspirants can turn out to be Organic Chemists. These professionals usually synthesize antibiotics, sugars, biologically important peptides and so on. They also manufacture new materials including polymers and biocatalysts. Organic Chemists can seek out for employments in Government agencies or in private sector. Most of them, in their day-to-day affairs develop new products for industries, agricultural sector, research or pharmaceutical companies.

M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry course and career opportunities

The eligibility criterion to pursue the M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry program is a Bachelors’ Degree in Chemistry. It is the mainly concerned with the study of the non-hydrocarbon containing compounds, which includes acids and bases, salts, catalysts, superconductors and so on. As there are so many subdivisions in Inorganic Chemistry like Biogeochemistry, Cosmo chemistry and Bio Inorganic chemistry, aspirants can pursue the M.Sc. course in the respective fields. After completing the Masters’ course in Inorganic Chemistry, professionals can seek out for career in medical institutes, forensic laboratories, health care, pharmaceutical companies and so on. Those who have flair in coaching can work as lecturers in colleges or institutes.

Key differentiators between M.Sc. Organic Chemistry and M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry

  • M.Sc. Organic Chemistry deals with the study of Carbon compounds whereas M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry is concerned with the study of non-carbon compounds.
  • The former is concerned with hydrocarbon containing compounds whereas the latter deals with the non-hydro carbon compounds.

Although both M.Sc. Organic Chemistry and M.Sc. Inorganic Chemistry are sub divisions of Chemistry, both are entirely different areas of study and practice.
