What are the differences between inorganic vs organic acids and bases?

Acids containing carbon are known as organic acids. Bases containing carbon are known as organic bases. Acids that do NOT contain carbon are known as inorganic acids or mineral acids. Bases that do NOT contain carbon are known as inorganic bases.

If it contains Carbon it is organic! Anything else (not having carbon) is inorganic.

Actually there are a few molecules that have carbon but are inorganic: CO2, CO, carbonates, carbides, cyanides, cyanates, and thiocyanates. But most bigger molecules that contain carbon are organic so its a good rule of thumb but just keep in mind that that isn't always true.
