Scope Of Chemistry The past decades are considered as the witness for the global perspective of Chemistry in all branch sciences and even in daily life. This era is directly related to the wellbeing of human being which encompasses various modern areas of Chemical Sciences such as Chemical Synthesis, Medical Science, Physical Science, Biological Science, Environmental Science, Agriculture Science, Forensic Science and several applied courses of Chemical Sciences. All these modern areas are offshoots of the major domain of Chemical Science called as Chemistry, which directly concerns wellbeing of everywhere. Chemistry is that physical science which includes the study of a range of matters such as atoms, crystals, molecules and many other collections of matters whether they are in isolation or in combination. It also involves the concepts of energy and entropy that are related to the spontaneity of various chemical processes. Since this is a branch of natural sciences, it is commonly known as The Science of Matter. Professionals working in this field are called chemists. They study the various compositions of matters and its concerned properties like density, size, shape and acidity. Usually the chemists specialize in one or more sub disciplines depending on their interests and the choice of their specialized field. Due to highly prized nature of Chemistry and its diverse curriculum, it lays the foundation for extremely productive and exciting career in variety of disciplines as pharmaceutical, agrochemical, mineralogy, molecular biology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, polymer technology, teaching research, scientific publication and so on. The importance of Chemistry would not diminish over time, so it will remain a promising career path. In a nut shell, the study of Chemistry provides a vehicle for obtaining an education for life in a broad sense, so welcome to the great world of chemistry. Barry Sharpless and Morten Meldal are awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2022 because they brought chemistry into the era of functionalism and laid the foundations of click chemistry. They share the prize with Carolyn Bertozzi, who took click chemistry to a new dimension and began using it to map cells.
