Chemistry is the study of the reactions of atoms and molecules, the stuff from which people and their physical environment are made.

Chemistry encompasses the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. It involves the creation of molecules and the manipulation of atoms. With a relatively small knowledge of atoms and molecules, it is possible to have a considerable understanding of many chemical phenomena we see and use. A comprehensive knowledge of chemistry is essential for the person who wishes to help solve the problems of today — problems of illness and disease, problems of wise use of our resources — and for the person who wants to do basic research in chemistry or who wants to work in the chemical industry.
