"The Chemistry of Things" aims to unveil the chemistry hidden in our day-to-day lives and show how the recent developments of Science contribute to the welfare of Society.

Everything around us, in Nature and elsewhere is made of “chemicals”. Chemistry is in the basis of Life and has a fundamental role on modern society, sometimes in surprising ways and in unexpected "things". "Things" that lay at the distance of a "click" on these pages.

This project was produced in the framework of the International Year of Chemistry 2011 and funded by COMPETE – Competitive Factors Operational Programme and by Ciência Viva, Media Science Programme.
