The field of chemistry is unique in that it is the scientific link that binds other important fields—such as biology, physics, and geology—together.The current model of atomic structure is the quantum mechanical model. 

The Chemistry program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater starts with the study of elementary particles, atoms, molecules, substances, metals, crystals and other aggregates of matter. This matter can be studied in solid, liquid, or gas states, in isolation or in combination. The interactions, reactions and transformations that are studied in chemistry are usually the result of interactions between atoms, leading to rearrangements of the chemical bonds which hold atoms together. Such behaviors are studied in a chemistry laboratory.


Because chemistry is primarily a practical experimental science requiring well developed laboratory and problem-solving skills, many graduates find employment in the multi-faceted chemical industry conducting applied research. For example, an industrial chemist might be working in the field of:

  • Food chemistry: developing and improving food products.
  • Pharmaceutical chemistry: researching new drug products.
  • Water chemistry: monitoring water quality or waste water treatment.
  • Agricultural chemistry: developing safer, more effective pesticides and fertilizers
  • Petroleum chemistry: researching new fuel and lubricant formulations
  • Biochemistry: involving the areas of biotechnology or toxicology testing

Many industrial chemists are working in the field of basic research, using the tools of theoretical chemistry. Large numbers of chemists are also employed in academic and government labs conducting both applied and basic research. Chemistry is a strong training component for those planning careers in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, pharmacology, or medical technology.
