Chemistry is the scientific study of matter, its properties, and its interactions with other matter and with energy. Chemists investigate the composition, structure, and properties of matter at the atomic and molecular level, and they use this knowledge to develop new materials, medicines, and technologies.

The field of chemistry is divided into several branches, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, and biochemistry. Organic chemistry is the study of compounds that contain carbon, while inorganic chemistry focuses on non-carbon-based compounds. Physical chemistry involves the study of the physical properties of matter and the fundamental principles of chemical reactions, while analytical chemistry is concerned with the development of methods for identifying and measuring the composition of materials. Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes in living organisms.

Chemists use a variety of tools and techniques to study matter, including spectroscopy, chromatography, and microscopy. They work in a variety of settings, including academic and industrial research labs, government agencies, and educational institutions.

The practical applications of chemistry are vast, ranging from developing new materials and energy sources to creating new drugs and understanding biological processes. The field has made significant contributions to medicine, agriculture, environmental science, and technology, among others.
