Readers Respond: Why Is Chemistry Important?

Responses: 108



Chemistry is a path of creativity at least to me.....other than maths and physics which is a bit mechanical itz a subject of logic and it creates a new way of thinking....organic is like a puzzle which is very interesting to solve and bonding is just awesome.

Chemistry is a study of life. Life is made of string of particulate matter.
—Guest Dr C. w. Huey


every things in this univers is made up of matter and metter is made up of elements molecules and compunds,even all the living things made up of compounds,the major compund is water in living organisms, scientists say mathematics is mother of all sciences while i am thinking chemistry is the father of all sciences. i thinks so if the field of chemistry is grooming all the others filed of sciences will be gromming,e.g. the hardwear of computers reduced from larger size to smaller is due to the progress of chemistry. the biotechnology also dependent on chemistry. the organic chemistry brings a revolution in the field chemistry, currently green chemistry also overcome the hazards of all branches of chemistry simply the whole progress in this world dependent in the field of chemistry so that is y chemistry

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).
