Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by joe on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 8:33pm.

why do organic reactions occur more slowly than inorganic reactions (those that contain ionic bonds)?

In inorganic reactions the ions merely need to get close enough to attract between + and - charges. Organic compounds are not ionic (some are polar); therefore, the atoms are not as free to move about.
