Chemistry is the science of materials, their composition and structure, and the changes they undergo. Quite a broad topic! Chemistry is such a large discipline that it is generally divided into six main branches:

* Analytical chemistry is concerned with the separation, identification, and composition of materials.

* Organic chemistry is the chemistry of most carbon compounds.

* Inorganic chemistry is (you guessed it) the chemistry of materials other than those classed as organic.

* Physical chemistry involves the study of the physical characteristics of materials and the mechanisms of their reactions.

* Biochemistry includes the study of materials and processes that occur in living things.

* Nuclear chemistry involves the study of subatomic particles and nuclear reactions.
