I wanna ask the rate of reaction of organic compound is slower or higher than that of inorganic compound?? I have found an ansswer like that : The organic paricles are molecules. Because of strong covalent bonding within the molecule, organic compounds do not readily react. Reactions involving organic compounds are generally slower than inorganic reactions. But I dont really understand why compound with covalent bond will have a lower reaction rate. Other than saying the strong covalent bond causes the rate of reaction slower, any other better and clearer explanation?? Thanks all of you!!!
