1130. Branches of chemistry
You know everything in universe, whatever you can see, touch, feel or smell is matter. We usually define matter as, anything that has some weight and occupies space is called matter. These chairs are matter, table is matter, these walls, room, fan, black board, chalk, in fact everything that is present around us, even the air, you are breathing, is matter.
As this room is made up of bricks and bricks are made up of sand and clay, matter is composed of atoms. These atoms are of different types and react with each other in different ways to form everything that is in this universe.
Study of element that exist in our universe, what are there chemical and physical properties, Thermodynamics tell under what conditions reactions occur and why? Why does things tend to happen one way but not the other? For example why does an object fall instead of going up and getting colder?
However, organic chemistry also includes synthetic compounds, such as polyesters, plastics, and countless other materials used in everyday life.
deals with the synthesis and behaviour of inorganic and organometallic compounds.
Biochemistry is the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems.
Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our cells, studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness. Biochemists need to understand how the structure of a molecule relates to its function, allowing them to predict how molecules will interact.Biochemistry covers a range of scientific disciplines, including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine. Because of its breadth, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years have been staggering. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this fascinating area of study.
