Chemistry deals with the nature of substances and the generation of entirely new materials by
their mutual reaction. Industrial Chemistry as a subject therefore comes as very important tool
in an application of chemical knowledge to a range of industrial endeavors. The pharmaceutical,
petrochemical, soap and detergents, paints, dyes and textiles, insecticides, food and biochemical
industries are just some of the endeavors where industrial chemistry is applied.
