Chemistry & Materials Science is the study of matter, the substances that comprise matter, and the ways that they combine, interact, and change. Chemical patents are frequently directed to new compounds—including small molecules and polymers—as well as to compositions, methods of using compounds and compositions, and genetically modified organisms.
An understanding of chemical structures and processes is vital to other fields such as biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. As a result, there is often considerable overlap among these industry sectors.
