Chemists are scientists who research and experiment with the properties of chemical substances. They measure the effects of chemical compounds in various situations and study inter-chemical reactions. Chemists, usually working as part of a larger research team, create useful compounds for use in a wide variety of practical applications. Almost every industry benefits from the theories and chemical compounds brought about by research in the chemical sciences. Chemists also work to improve the quality of established chemical products and utilize advanced computer programs to establish new technologies in the field.
