Chemistry is a natural science dealing with the properties of substances, the changes they undergo and how these changes undergo in nature. Chemistry is concerned with atoms and their interaction with other atoms to form molecules. Chemicals are everywhere and everything is made of chemicals. There are countless types of matter around us and this complexity is composed of combination of about 100 chemical elements. A student of chemistry studies the properties of natural and manmade chemicals, various forms of involved energies such as photochemical reactions, oxidation-reduction reactions, separation of mixtures, changes in phases of matter, properties of pure metals to polymers, etc. Hence chemistry is one of the foundations of modern industrial economies.
Advancements in chemistry have brought major improvements in our world. These improvements range from new medicines to new materials such as sensors, electronic, magnetic, nano-materials etc, to new sources of energy that enable new activities to make us safer and stronger. Past triumphs of chemistry include synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agricultural products, while newer challenges of the day are chemical memory, superconductors, solar cells, batteries, clean fuels and challenges relating to health and our environment. Chemistry as a discipline has a bright future. Plenty of chemistry related, high paying jobs are available in various industrial sectors. All the medical students, physicists, geologists, nutritionists study chemistry.
