Chemistry is the scientific study of the structure, properties, and reactions of the chemical elements and the compounds they form, wherever they occur. Some chemists study chemicals in living systems, while others study the chemistry of space, and others study the chemistry of the water or land around us all. Wherever matter exists, there is a chemist studying it.
