About Chemistry


Chemistry is the study of matter and the chemical reactions between substances. Chemistry is also the study of matter’s composition, structure, and properties. Matter is essentially anything in the world that takes up space and has mass. Chemistry is sometimes called “the central science,” because it bridges physics with other natural sciences, such as geology and biology.

Different field of Chemistry

The study of chemistry can be organized into distinct branches that emphasize subsets of chemical concepts. Analytical chemistry seeks to determine the exact chemical compositions of substances. Biochemistry is the study of chemicals found in living things (such as DNA and proteins). Inorganic chemistry studies substances that do not contain carbon. Organic chemistry studies carbon-based substances. Physical chemistry is the study of the physical properties of chemicals. Biophysical chemistry is the application of physical chemistry in a biological context


 Organic Chemistry Organic chemistry is the branch of chemistry that involves the scientific study of organic compounds (compounds that contain covalently bonded carbon atoms). This branch of chemistry primarily deals with the structure and chemical composition of organic compounds.
Inorganic Chemistry Inorganic Chemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with the study of compounds, which does not consist of carbon-hydrogen atoms. The substances which do not have carbon-hydrogen bonding are  the metals, salts, chemical substances, etc.
Physical Chemistry Physical chemistry is the branch of chemistry devoted to the study of the behavior of matter at an atomic or molecular level. It also involves the study of the properties of substances at different scales, from the macroscopic scale which includes particles that are visible to the naked eye.
Analytical Chemistry Analytical chemistry involves the separation, identification, and the quantification of matter. It involves the use of classical methods along with modern methods involving the use of scientific instruments. Today, the field of analytical chemistry generally involves the use of modern, sophisticated instruments.
