Along with biological sciences and physics, chemistry is one of the three main arms of science. It can be defined as the study of matter what it's composed of and its structure, its properties, and how it reacts and changes when exposed to different situations. As it studies matter at its most basic level, there is much overlap between chemistry and other science subjects. Chemical processes and the composition of elements play a large part in the study of living organisms and matter's relationship to forces. The origins of the discipline lie in the ancient art of alchemy, the goal of which was to turn worthless material into gold
Chemical engineering focuses on the conversion of substances into more useful ones - like medicines using chemical processes. The focus can be on the actual substance produced or the process of conversation.
Biochemistry studies the chemical processes within living organisms, such as those which convert thought into action or make you feel a certain way.
Medicinal chemistry focuses on synthesising certain chemicals present in the human body.
Astrochemistry discovers what matter in space is composed of, and how elements and molecules behave there.
Nuclear chemistry is the study of radioactive elements, how to harness them, and their effects on organisms and matter.
