UNIST Chemistry pioneers new frontiers of chemistry
Chemistry is often called The Central Science. Why is this? Chemistry closely touches many disciplines because we make the chemicals and materials used by others, and this is why chemists are central to all areas of science and engineering. Everything in our world is made up of matter, and Chemists study matter at very small distances such as atoms and molecules. Chemistry is also indispensable to our daily life. From cooking in the morning to drinking coffee, riding a bus, reading, working out, and going to bed, chemistry and chemical processes are always underway. We use Chemistry to make new medicines, to store and retrieve energy sources such as hydrogen, to better understand the fundamental nature of the life, to create flexible semiconductor materials, and for many other reasons.
