What is Chemistry?

The simplest definition of chemistry? It’s the study of matter—its properties, compositions, structure, and interactions. Everything you see consists of matter. Matter can exist as a solid, liquid, or gas. Chemistry is particularly concerned with the energy changes of matter during interactions.

You can apply chemistry to almost any subject. Three examples? The chemistry of foods, the chemistry of blood, and the chemistry of soap and laundry. 

Five Branches of Chemistry

Chemistry has five accepted branches: organic, inorganic, biochemistry, analytical, and physical.

Organic chemistry is the study of carbon compounds. Carbon occurs in combination with other elements in all plants and animals—dead or alive.

Inorganic chemistry is the study of substances that do not contain carbon groups. It might help you think of inorganics as nonliving compounds (e.g., salts, acids, bases). There are fewer inorganic compounds than organic ones.

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes or chemical characteristics in living matter. It’s a shortened version of “biological chemistry.”

Analytical chemistry is the study of matter for the purpose of identification, measurement, and weight.

Physical chemistry is the study of molecules, to see how they combine and react with one another. Physical chemistry looks at them using the laws of physics. Like biochemistry, it’s a combination of disciplines.

Why Study Chemistry?

If chemistry intimidates you, like it does so many of us, remember this. It’s practical! The scientist in the lab mixing smoky potions? He or she is doing work that might impact your food, clothing, electricity, fuel, healthcare, and communication tools. The old advertising slogan, “Better Living Through Chemistry,” was definitely onto something!

By studying chemistry, you'll be able to understand supermarket labels, prep meals for maximum flavor, and avoid unsafe cleaning practices. Chemistry can also improve your reading, writing, and organizational skills.

The demand for chemists is high. Chemists get paid well for their expertise. Most chemists work as part of a research team. That means, if you’re interested in chemistry, you should be able to work well with others towards a common goal. You’ll find chemists working in biology, physics, geology, and environmental science.

Last, but not least, chemistry is lots of fun! Even if you’re not interested in advanced study, there are lots of cools projects that demonstrate single principles. You can find a list of them in our Learning Center.
