Chemical energy is what allows our bodies to keep functioning. In more basic terms, we, along with every living thing on this planet, need chemical energy to survive. Because it’s most commonly found in food, chemical energy is stored in the atoms, electrons, and molecular bonds that make up our bodies. From here,… Continue reading »
In chemistry, reagents are compounds, substances, or mixtures used to examine chemical reactions. Commonly, a reagent is incorporated into a test to either produce a chemical reaction, or to check if a reaction would occur to begin with. Read on to discover more about how chemical reagents work, and what role they’re playing… Continue reading »
If you’ve ever used a pregnancy test, a blood glucose test kit, or a coronavirus rapid test kit at home, then you’ve already used reagents. Technically, the reagent that you use in home test kits are your own body fluids. Usually, this is in the form of either urine or blood, since these… Continue reading »

Environmental chemistry is an exciting career concerned with what is known as the ‘fate and transport’ of chemicals in the environment. Often confused with green chemistry, environmental chemists analyse how chemicals and biochemicals alike move through the environment, and how these can impact animals, ecosystems, and our own health. If you want to… Continue reading »
Food is basically solar energy that’s stored in the form of complex biochemical substances. The process of releasing stored energy from food is almost as complex as the process of storing energy in food. This article will explain how this process works, as well as why it happens. A Brief Overview Of Chemical… Continue reading »
