Chemists observe and measure components of the natural world, and the way chemicals interact with each other. They constantly make use of atoms and molecules, and other very small particles to, for instance, synthesize new materials. Some chemists work in a lab, in a research environment, and other may work on a computer developing theories or models or predicting reactions, while other do field work.

Interested in chemistry? Here are some famous chemists to get you inspired:
