Along with physics and biology, the field of chemistry is known as one of the three foundational sciences often called the ‘central science’ as it provides a link between other natural sciences. Chemistry is defined as the study of matter which includes its structure, composition, properties, along with understanding how and why substances interact with energy or other matter. The study of chemistry can help us explain natural and man-made chemical phenomena and the key to understanding the world around us.
