The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the ground we walk on and the air we breathe are all made up of elements. The water we drink is hydrogen and oxygen and the salt we sprinkle on our food is sodium and chloride; all of the elements have been classified in the periodic table, based upon their specific properties and behaviour. inside an element are atoms and inside atoms are protons, neutrons and electrons. Find out how these atoms join together in making molecules and how molecules today are changing the world we live in.

Chemistry deals with some crucial questions, such as whether silicon-based life can exist. Have a look at the big questions for this and other interesting topics.
