What is Chemistry?
In Chemistry, we study what substances are made of, their particle structure, their properties and their chemical reactions. Chemistry has a certain magic about it.

Today, we know a lot more about substances than our medieval fore bearers, and with an informed use of chemicals, the quality of our lives has improved drastically.Think about how our lives would be without medicines, household products, beauty products, home improvement products or water treatment chemicals.
