Every aspect of our lives is affected by Chemistry. It is often referred to as the central science because it joins together physics, biology, geology, and environmental science. Everything is chemical! 

Some of the ways Chemistry is used are:

  • Clean air and water
  • Shelter
  • Life-saving drugs
  • Cosmetics
  • Plastics
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Cooking
  • Biological processes
  • Fertilizers and pesticides
