+ Chemists Job Description
Chemicals make up our world. Some are natural. Some are made by humans—synthetic.

Chemists study how chemicals affect each other, and how they interact with the environment. Usually they specialize in a particular kind of chemistry. They use their knowledge to contribute to many different fields, from energy development to medicine and food processing > view more

They may also compound the medication, though this is now a much smaller part of a pharmacist’s practice > view more
