Chemistry is the study of the elemental composition, structure, properties and reactivity of atoms and molecules. From the simplest gaseous element to complex structures such as proteins, chemistry impacts all aspects of everyday life. Chemists strive to understand and control the fundamental structure-property relationships of molecules. From this knowledge they develop new materials for applications in areas such as life and health sciences, pharmaceuticals, nanoscience, electronics and next generation environmental initiatives (fuel cell and solar panel technology for example).
