About

Chemistry offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign involves the study of the composition and properties of matter and the investigation of the laws that govern the combination of elements.

Overview

Chemistry as a Major

Chemistry offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is both theoretical and applied; it plays a vital role in everyone's life, and yet, may be the most abstract of sciences. Chemists are scientists whose activities are as varied as pure research, product development, writing, administration, marketing, and teaching.

Chemists often specialize in one of the sub-fields of chemistry. Analytical chemists determine the structure, composition and nature of substances, and develop new analytical techniques. One area where analytical chemists are heavily involved is the identification of the types and amounts of pollutants in the environment. Organic chemists originally studied the chemistry of substances from living things, but this area of chemistry has been broadened to include the study of all compounds of carbon. Carbon, when combined with other elements, can form an incredible variety of substances; and a large number of modern commercial products, including plastics and other synthetic materials, have resulted from the organic chemist's work. Inorganic chemists study compounds of elements other than carbon. They may apply their knowledge in developing new substances, such as catalysts to lower the pollution in automobile exhaust and materials for use in solid state electronic components. Physical chemists study the role of energy transformations in reactions, and their work will be important in finding new and better energy sources.
