Chemistry Research Areas and Disciplines

One of the fundamental research activities of chemists is to rearrange the atoms of known substances to produce new products. For example, chemists have developed previously unknown synthetic fibers such as Kevlar and are currently working on developing newer fibers. They are also developing new plastics that can lead to the production of many new items previously unavailable because no natural product could do the job.

Chemists are also developing new alloys to design stronger and lighter buildings, automobiles, and everyday items. They are developing special fuels to increase engine efficiency and heat output and also to lessen the strain on natural resources. See the articles on chemical engineering and physics for more information on current research.

Chemists are also working on the development of drugs for the curing of diseases. They are also involved in biochemistry, nanotechnology, and genetic engineering. For example, they are producing new bacterial strains that can synthesize useful products such as human insulin or interferon. See the articles on genetics, biochemistry, and biomedical engineering for more information.
