Chemistry ties in with scores of things you handle daily, nearly every business uses chemistry somewhere in its operation, and there are always fascinating new applications being developed.
Chemistry is the study of atoms and molecules and of their function, uses, and applications in the world around us. That may sound dull, but think of the implications – efficient fuels, dyes that do not fade, stainless steel and non-rusting metals,
antibiotics and fungicides, adhesives, long lasting tires, weather resistant coatings, breathable fabrics and no-iron garments, light but strong construction materials, bullet-proof vests, CDs and LCDs, micro circuitry and computer chips – and all at an amazing low cost.
Life would be very different without chemistry.
