People in the industrialized nations enjoy not only the highest standard of living, that is,
the material comforts which are measured by the goods, services and luxuries
available to an individual, but also quality life. Quality life depends upon business and
employment, services, health and nutrition, population, leisure time in addition to
standard of living. Much of this is due to chemistry.
Chemistry enables us to design all sorts of materials: drugs to fight diseases; pesticides
to protect crops and our health; fertilizers to grow abundant food; fuel for
transportation; fibres to provide comfort and variety in clothes; building materials for
housing; plastics for diverse uses; and much more.
When we address ourselves the most fundamental question: What is the nature of
life? Chemistry provides essential information on this subject. The theories of
chemistry illuminate our understanding of the material world from tiny atoms to giant
Everything you see, smell, taste and touch is made up of matter. Even the way you
perceive the world through your senses involves chemical reactions.
Chemistry is the science that deals with matter and the changes that it undergoes. It is
a study of the composition, structure, and properties of matter and of the changes that
occur in matter.
Perhaps the only permanent thing in the world is change. Iron rusts, snow melts,
paints peel off and firewoods burn. We grow up, we grow old. Living plants and
animals undergo ceaseless change, and even dead animals and plants continue to
change as they decay. Such changes fascinated people and inspired them to look
more closely at nature’s way of working.
Understanding change is closely related to understanding the nature and composition
of matter- the physical material of the universe. Matter is anything that occupies space
and has mass.
It has long been known that matter can change or be made to change from one form
to another. These changes are broadly classified into chemical and physical changes.
Chemical changes, more commonly called as chemical reactions are processes
whereby one substance is transformed into another as a result of combination or
