All those compounds that are not organic in nature are called as Inorganic Compounds. There properties are completely opposite to those of organic compounds.

Petropedia explains Inorganic Compounds

Various materials or compounds such as glass, ceramic, metals and stones falls in the category of Inorganic Compounds as these are made up of certain minerals or either rocks which are made up of minerals.

Almost every type of non-organic or inorganic compounds are stable compounds, however, whenever they are put into the reaction with some reactive organic compound, they tend to react or deteriorate. These compounds can either be natural or synthetic just like organic compounds. Inorganic compounds as well as organic compounds are capable of causing certain chemical reaction when brought in the contact with hydrocarbons, moisture. The problems such as corrosion in the pipelines and other industrial equipment are one of the example of reaction of inorganic compounds.
