Chemistry is the study of the composition, properties and behavior of matter. Chemistry is considered the “central science”, as it is the science of the molecular scale, and it is at the molecular level that major advancements are being made in areas such as medicine, nanotechnology, new materials, and the environment. Understanding chemistry is useful as it provides a basis for understanding the physical world and overlaps many of the other sciences.
