What is Materials Chemistry?
Materials chemistry is focused on understanding the relationships between the arrangement of atoms, ions, or molecules comprising a material, and its overall bulk structural and physical properties. This includes polymer, solid-state, and surface chemistry. This broad field consists of studying the structures and properties of existing materials, synthesizing and characterizing new materials, and using advanced computational techniques to predict structures and properties of materials that have not yet been realized.
Materials chemistry is different from materials science in that materials scientists tend to apply the principles of physics and engineering to study all aspects of materials. Materials chemistry, however, provides information about the structure and composition of materials.
