Inorganic Chemistry – Definition, Jobs, Subjects, Related Fields, Career & Scope in Pakistan & Abroad
Inorganic Chemistry is a sub-discipline of Chemistry in which we study about behavior and properties (both physical and chemical) inorganic compounds. Inorganic compounds are referred as compounds without hydrocarbon groups. In short in this branch of Chemistry we study all chemical compunds ecept organic compounds. Inorganic Chemistry is subdivided into following subbranches;

Jobs, Salary, Benefits, Career & Scope
Its a practical science which is applied in uncounted industries. H2SO4 is one of the most important raw material for many industries, that’s why in near past countries with great production of sulfuric acid were considered economically strong. Even now inorganic chemists play a vital role in the economic progress of any country. They use their knowledge for the industrial research and improvement of production. Master degree holder in this field are recruited as gazetted officers of 17th grade in Public sector. MPhil/MS and PhD degree holders are given the post of assistant professor (Grade 18) in government universities and research labs.

Pakistan is a developing country and we need large number of inorganic chemists for rapid industrial and economic growth. There is a unlimited job opportunities for talented scientists of this field not only in Pakistan but also abroad. Talented chemists start their own business after getting some practical experience. We have given examples of some very talented chemists in our articles on Chemistry and organic chemistry. You must read both these article for further guidance. Private sector consider the qualification and experience for offering a job package, so never refuse even a unpaid internship offer.
