Chemistry is a science that deals with the properties, composition, and structure of substances (elements and compounds), the reactions and transformations they undergo, and the energy released or absorbed during those processes. Often called the “central science,” chemistry is concerned with atoms as building blocks, with everything in the material world, and with all living things. Britannica Concise Encyclopedia
