Chemistry  

 



INTRODUCTION
Chemistry is the branch of Science dealing with chemicals and their properties. These chemicals include Metals, Non-Metals and Gases. Chemistry can be divided into three main branches namely
Physical Chemistry
Inorganic Chemistry
Organic Chemistry

Knowledge of Chemistry is used in Industries such as Petroleum, Rubber, Plastics, Paint, Textiles, Dye and Drug making companies.

NATURE OF WORK
The study of Chemistry involves chemical analysis, synthesis, research and sampling of solids, liquids or gases for determining their composition, properties, physical and chemical changes. This study is used in development of new products through improved new production processes and advanced scientific research. They also work on research projects for improving methods of production and for devising new products.

PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES
Chemistry requires a lot of experimental work in laboratory as well as intense research, hence aspiring people must have good grasp of scientific concepts and a consistent academic record. Analytical bent of mind, perseverance, hard working and curious bent of mind are required.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES
Chemists can work in R and D, Production, Teaching, Marketing and various other fields. They can find jobs in Textile, petroleum, Rubber, Pharma, Food, Fertilizers and Cosmetic Industries. They can also work in the field of Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Polymer Chemistry.
Chemistry graduates are also recruited for Army Ordinance Corps.
Chemistry is also an option for C.S.E.
