Compare rate of reaction of organic and inorganic compounds

  1. Sep 5, 2014 #1
    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!!!
