Q: role of chemistry in our daily life
A: Chemistry is everywhere, and we use all the time in our daily lives, probably without knowing it. Here are some things that wouldn't be possible without the field of chemistry. No plastic. [ That's no plastic bags, no CDs or DVDs, no iPods, no plastic silverware or plastic cups and plates, no scotch tape, no styrofoam, no synthetic fabics (like nylon, fleece, rayon, and kevlar). Most of your
car is made of plastic too. hello No gasoline. No driving fancy cars! No pharmaceuticals. Modern medicine wouldn't exist. No aspirin, no pain killers! No water purification. Drinking water would make you sick half the time. Most of sewage treatment is done using chemistry. No synthetic fertilizers. Farming and food production wouldn't be nearly as productive and starvation would be a massive problem. Insecticides are also made by chemists. No paint. No cosmetics. No processed foods. No air conditioning. No refrigeration. No soap and cleaning products. No photography. No televisions. No radios. No computeres. No glue. No batteries. No electricity in your house. There's probably nothing you've done today that wasn't made thanks to chemistry. You'd pretty much have to go back to living in a cave to get away from it! ]
