Chemistry is the branch of sciences that studies the composition, structure, properties, changes and interactions of matter.
Military Applications of Chemistry
Since chemistry is the molecular science, military applications of chemistry rely on the understanding of the structure and changes at the molecular level. These application areas can include the synthesis and development of advanced materials and explosives, solving environmental problems, creating innovative biotechnology solutions, and chemical or biological sensing.
The Chemistry Major includes all the courses recommended by the American Chemical Society and is designed to provide cadets with basic instruction with comparable emphasis on the areas of analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
