Chemistry is everywhere, from the cleaning products in the supermarket and colourful toys and clothes to the pills or ointment the doctor may prescribe for a rash. Chemistry, therefore, is a huge part of everyday life.
Knowledge of chemistry is also vital in dealing with the environment. Pollution is one of modern society’s largest problems with far-reaching consequences – both globally and locally. Private companies are bound by Danish environmental law to research their own impact on the environment and thus need to consult with chemistry experts.
