About the Subject

Chemistry as a subject has immense scope in the academic field, research, and also in industry. Industries based on chemistry or requiring applications of chemistry outnumber other industries. Research in the field of chemistry is going on not only in institutions but also in industries. Because of this, students get attracted to this subject are always much more than to any other science subject.

For a chemist, everything around us- what we sense by our sense organs is a chemical. What we see is chemistry; even why and how we see is also chemistry. When a photon of light enters our eyes, a chemical reaction takes place inside. What we drink, what we eat are all chemicals for a chemist. Reactions taking place inside plant and animal bodies are of interest to a chemist. So the world around us far and near is chemistry-based.

Our country is striving hard to improve infrastructure, which rests on the shoulders of steel and cement. Both these are inorganic chemistry-based industries. As long as living beings are on earth, medicines will be required. The pharmaceutical industry provides medicines that are chemicals. The paint industry makes things attractive. Just see the world around,  near and far, living and nonliving may be soil or grass; water or distant planet or star- chemistry finds applications everywhere. The list is just unending.
