Chemistry bills itself as the central science; central because on one side it is the basis of biochemistry and medical research, while on the other side it merges with the fields of solid state and theoretical physics. It is at the heart of the production of most of the consumer goods and infrastructures around us. Chemistry is also at the fore front of the research seeking to solve some of the most daunting challenges faced by humanity, including global warming, scarcity of fossil resources, energy efficiency, food production and health sciences.
