Branches of Chemistry – Modern Chemistry 1.1

Identify 6 Branches of Chemistry
Inorganic, Organic, Physical, Analytical, Biochemistry, Theoretical

Inorganic Chemistry
regarding all matter except carbon-containing

Organic Chemistry
regarding all carbon-containing matter

Physical Chemistry
regarding energy and matter, and the properties, relationships there between

Analytical Chemistry
regarding the identification of compounds and composition os substances; used in forensics

Biochemistry
regarding substances and processes in living things

Theoretical Chemistry
using computer and mathematical models, e.g. to discover properties of unknown elements

Biochemistry
The Chemistry of Living organisms

Organic Chemistry
The study of all chemicals containing carbon

Inorganic Chemistry
The study of substances that do not contain carbon

Analytic Chemistry
The area of chemistry that focuses on the composition of matter

Physical Chemistry
The area that deals with the mechanism, the rate, and the energy transfer that occurs when matter undergoes a change

Applied Chemistry (applied research)
research that is directed toward a practical goal or application

Pure Chemistry (basic research)
the pursuit of chemical knowledge for its own sake

Chemistry
The study of the properties of matter and how it changes

Matter
Anything which has mass and occupies space

technology
the means by which a society provides its members with those things needed and desired

physical chemistry
the behavior and changes of matter and the related energy changes

analytical chemistry
components and composition of substances

biochemistry
