Everything that can be seen, touched, tasted, or smelled is made up of chemicals. Chemists study matter and the changes it undergoes to solve some of society’s most vexing problems. Some work on medicines to treat cancer and other diseases. Others develop materials to convert the sun’s energy to electricity. Still others develop polymers that have applications in cleaning up pollution. Additional knowledge translates to additional career options.
