AS Chemistry Year 12

Ms. Shejila Dileep

Why Chemistry is important?

Chemistry is truly the "central science". New breakthroughs in fields such as genetics, biochemistry, medicine, materials science, forensics, nanotechnology, drug discovery, the environment and next-generation computer hardware are all driven by Chemistry.

Chemistry is about the molecules all around us. It is about matter: specifically how matter changes. Studying Chemistry will help you to understand why things around us behave the way they do.

A sound knowledge of Chemistry is required to fully understand most other areas of science, and this is why the study of Chemistry is either compulsory or recommended by many other disciplines in the University.
