My Views about Chemistry:

Chemistry is a part of our life: Its principles provides better understanding of life and its origin.The material and items we use and our body composed of chemicals. It has vital role in development of other scientific disciplines.

Chemistry has made our life comfortable but also created some challenges, These challenges have to be overcommed by innovative idea and safe use of chemicals and chemical methods.Chemists has to focus on environmental chemistry and chemistry of diffrent ecosystems to maintain the nautral balance.

Chemistry has potential and chemists have the ability to solve the present day energy crisis and to meet increasing energy demands especially with depletion of fossil fuels. Hydrogen could be the future source/career of energy.

Chemistry provides medicines and better undestanding of nature and natural processes.
