Q: Is chemistry a branch of physical science that studies the composition? ¶
A: Yes, and structure, properties and change of matter.
Q: Is chemistry sometimes called the central science because it bridges other natural sciences? ¶
A: Yes, and including physics, geology and biology.
Q: Is chemistry the study of the physical and fundamental basis of chemical systems and processes? ¶
Q: Was chemistry developed by Justus von Liebig and others? ¶
A: Yes, and following Friedrich Wöhler's synthesis of urea which proved that living organisms were, in theory, reducible to chemistry.
Q: Is chemistry closely related? ¶
A: Yes, as in medicinal chemistry or neurochemistry.
Q: Is chemistry the preparation? ¶
A: Yes, and characterization, and understanding of substances with a useful function.
Q: Is chemistry a distinct discipline from chemical physics? ¶
A: Yes, but again, there is very strong overlap.
Q: Is chemistry done without it? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the analysis of material samples to gain an understanding of their chemical composition and structure? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the study of neurochemicals? ¶
A: Yes, including transmitters, peptides, proteins, lipids, sugars, and nucleic acids; their interactions, and the roles they play in forming, maintaining, and modifying the nervous system.
Q: Is chemistry usually the result of interactions between atoms? ¶
A: Yes, and leading to rearrangements of the chemical bonds which hold atoms together.
Q: Is chemistry also associated with molecular biology and genetics? ¶
Q: Is chemistry finally understood due to a series of remarkable discoveries that succeeded in probing and discovering the very nature of the internal structure of atoms? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the study of the structure? ¶
A: Yes, and properties, composition, mechanisms, and reactions of organic compounds.
Q: Is chemistry typically divided into several major sub-disciplines? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the study of the chemicals? ¶
A: Yes, and chemical reactions and chemical interactions that take place in living organisms.
Q: Is chemistry the study of chemistry via fundamental theoretical reasoning? ¶
A: Yes, In particular the application of quantum mechanics to chemistry is called quantum chemistry.
Q: Is chemistry traditionally grouped by the type of matter being studied or the kind of study? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the study of how subatomic particles come together and make nuclei? ¶
Q: Is chemistry the study of the properties and reactions of inorganic compounds? ¶
