Carbonic acid is considered an inorganic acid because of the structure of the molecule. Usually organic compounds contains carbons and hydrogens but at least one hydrogen is bonded to a carbon. For carbonic acid, none of the hydrogen bonds to the central carbon thus carbonic acid is an inorganic compound.
