Chemistry is fundamental to life itself. Whether it's the air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we use or the food we consume, chemistry is essential when it comes to meeting our basic needs.
From the chlorination and fluoridisation of water to finding sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, developments in chemical technologies strive to continuously improve quality of life, providing real solutions to issues in areas such as energy usage, medicine and materials.
Which is why Chemistry is such an important - and relevant - area of study; and one that leads to fulfilling careers across a whole spectrum of industries.
