Chemistry deals with research and knowledge about chemicals, either artificial or toxic substances, or ones composed in physical things. They have developed new synthetic fibers, paints, adhesives, drugs, cosmetics, electronic components, lubricants, and many other products. Advances in medicine, agriculture, food processing, and other areas have been influenced by the research on the chemistry of living things. Many chemists work in research, in either basic or applied, development, or in investigation of laws that govern the combination of elements. Basic research investigates the properties, composition, and structure of matter, and applied research creates new products or improves old ones.
