everywhere is chemistry

yes life is made up of chemistry.For me chemistry is very interesting because i feel by learning it we can understand the other sciences too.My specialization is in analytical chem.This tells us about neutrational values,specimen analysis,toxicity,sampling and so many valuable things.So chem is around us and inside us.Moreover with today's instrumentation and with the help of large variety of chemical measurements available, we can get the results of clinical,environmental,occupational health,safety applications and industrial analysis.

We are chemical beings

Many biology and anatomy and physiology courses begin with chemistry. More than just nutrients, medicines and poisons, everything we do is chemical. Geology too - why do we wear diamonds and not calcium carbonate on our fingers?

Paint Pigments

If it weren't for chemists, we wouldn't have all the modern pigments for paints we have today! Including my long-time favorite Prussian blue (though the color maker was trying to make a red).

chemistry importance

well now you have asked something. my first days of chemistry started at the age of about 9 yrs not long after WWII, since then I have recieved from the study a vast interest in everything and still I am learning at 70 year old but in my mind I know it is chemistry that has made me what I am and what I believe in, to myself it is the most powerfull mind mover of all..making ones mind to explore and discover and understand what its all about, I am still looking..experimenting and wondering. Yes to myself chemistry is the all powerfull mover and doer of the whole mystery of life and the meanings. But sadly I can no longer explore the underground I so loved to in search for the Phylosophers stone.
