Why Study Chemistry?

Chemistry touches every aspect of our lives. The study of the complex molecular world, a world that exists at the submicroscopic level, is a discipline of enormous scope.

Chemical research has produced innovations in agriculture, industry, health care and consumer goods. Today, chemistry is concerned with developing processes and products that will be the least harmful to the environment.
