chemistry
The science that deals with the composition, structure, properties, interactions, and transformations of matter. The two main subdivisions of chemistry are organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry; other important branches include biochemistry, physical chemistry, and analytical chemistry.
In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.
—Sir William Osler
