One of the main arms of science, chemistry is the study of substances of which matter is composed. This can include the composition and structures, properties, reactions and changes of these substances. Chemistry plays a vital part in our lives, as it is responsible for the world you observe today. Simple things such as cooking, and the changing colour of leaves, rely on chemical reactions.
