Organic Chemistry

Organic chemists are employed in all those industries that depend on R&D, working on projects from fundamental discovery to highly applied product development. Organic chemists have produced a wonderful myriad of highly successful products to fight human diseases.

Organic chemists at all levels are employed by pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, consumer product, petroleum, and other industries from small to very large. Research and development is the primary opportunity in industry. Research universities that grant Ph.D.s have excellent teaching and research opportunities for Ph.D. chemists, many of whom will have post-doctoral training. Government labs also employ organic chemists.

Most companies develop products that solve consumer or customer problems and many of the solutions are based on organic molecules. Since new sets of problems and opportunities constantly arise, organic chemists are in demand to synthesize and produce the molecules that solve those problems. Consequently, the job market for organic chemists is usually strong, again reflecting that organic compounds and chemists are a critical factor in so many varied industries.

Other areas for employment include Agro chemicals, environment control...

Industrial Chemistry

What is Industrial Chemistry ?

Industrial chemistry is the phrase used frequently to describe the area of commerce that focuses primarily on the manufacture of chemicals or the use of chemicals to manufacture “chemical products.” Comb your hair with plastic combs and brushes synthesized from chemical feedstocks, use a synthetic nylon toothbrush and toothpaste formulated by chemists to whiten teeth and protect against decay… Industrial Chemistry is a vibrant, ever-changing area. Billions of dollars go yearly into developing new materials, new processes, and better methods.

This is most evident in the production of ammonia, sulfuric acid, or sodium hydroxide, or in the use of petroleum feedstocks to produce organic materials such as ethylene, styrene, benzene, or caprolactam. In turn, these organics may be converted to the plastics, synthetic rubbers, or fibers that are commonplace in our everyday use.

Thus Industrial Chemists basically apply the principles that govern physical and chemical operations in industrial plants and products.

Chemistry

What is Chemistry?

Reactions, elements, atoms, matter solutions, metabolism, periodic tables. Have you ever wondered about how these apply to everyday life? Life consists of chemical reactions!!! Everything on Earth, in our solar system, in our galaxy, and in the universe is made up of matter. Matter is the name scientists have given to everything that you can touch, or see, or feel, or smell. Chemistry is the science of matter; the branch of the natural sciences dealing with the composition of substances, their properties and reactions, and the transformations that they experience.

It is divided into three main branches — physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry. Since Physical Chemistry uses both chemistry and physics, it is the study of both matter and energy. It studies the details of atoms and elements.

Inorganic chemistry is the branch of chemistry concerned with the properties and reactions of inorganic compounds. This includes all chemical compounds except the many which are based upon chains or rings of carbon atoms, which are termed...

Cheminformatics

What is Cheminformatics ?

Chemoinformatics is a recent scientific discipline that has evolved in the last 40 years as the interface between chemistry and computer science. It has been realized that in many areas of chemistry, the huge amount of data and information produced by chemical research can only be processed and analyzed by computer methods. Furthermore, many of the problems faced in chemistry are so complex that novel approaches utilising solutions that are based on informatics methods are needed. This has resulted in the emergence of the discipline of Chemoinformatics, which involves the creation, retrieval, organisation, dissemination and processing of chemical information.

Thus, methods were developed for building databases on chemical compounds and reactions, for the prediction of physical, chemical and biological properties of compounds and materials, for drug design, for structure elucidation, for the prediction of chemical reactions and for the design of organic syntheses.

It uses informatics tools to solve chemistry problems. Creation of large in silico virtual libraries of compounds vastly increase the efficiency in mining the chemical space and considerably reduces time and...

Chemical Biology

What is Chemical Biology ?

The most exciting and vibrant areas of research often lie at the interfaces between disciplines that have traditionally been separate. Chemical biology is a scientific discipline at the interface of the life sciences and the physical sciences. It involves the application of chemical techniques and tools, often compounds produced through synthetic Chemistry, to the study and manipulation of biological systems.

Chemical biology differs from the more traditional disciplines of Chemistry and Biology in its emphasis on integrating a wider series of experimental techniques, ranging from synthetic organic Chemistry, to Biochemistry, to structural, molecular, and cellular biology. Chemical biology cuts across a series of disciplines and uses aspects of them together to address complex problems in Biology and medicine.

One area in which Chemical biology will have a critical impact is drug discovery. Understanding how biological pathways work and more importantly how to manipulate them, will allow researchers to design molecules that can prevent, treat or cure diseases. Because cancer arises from a series of incorrect or incoherent messages between genes, this field is uniquely capable...
