List and define the six main branches of chemistry
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
Organic chemistry involves the study of the structure, properties, and preparation of chemical compounds that consist primarily of carbon and hydrogen. organic chemistry the study of most carbon containing compounds
INORGANIC CHEMISTRY
Inorganic chemistry is the study of the properties and behaviour of inorganic compounds.
It covers all chemical compounds except organic compounds.
Inorganic chemists study things such as crystal structures, minerals, metals, catalysts, and most elements in the Periodic Table.
ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY
Analytical chemistry involves the qualitative and quantitative determination of the chemical components of substances.
PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY
Physical Chemistry —the study of the effect of chemical structure on the physical properties of a substance.
Physical chemists typically study the rate of a chemical reaction, the interaction of molecules with radiation, and the calculation of structures and properties.
- BIOCHEMISTRY
Biochemistry is the study of chemical reactions that take place in living things. It tries to explain them in chemical terms.
Biochemical research includes cancer and stem cell biology, infectious disease, and cell membrane and structural biology.
It spans molecular biology, genetics, biochemical pharmacology, clinical biochemistry, and agricultural biochemistry.
THEORETICAL CHEMISTRY the use of math and computers to understand the principles being observed and
