"Materials Chemistry" can be describe as the branch of chemistry aimed at the preparation, characterization, and understanding of substances/systems that have some specific useful function). It requires 4 primary components: preparation /synthesis, structure, characterization and applications. It combines the elements from all four classical areas of chemistry but puts an intellectual focal point on the fundamental scientific issues that are unique to "materials".
largely related to the study of chemistry of condensed phases (solids, liquids, polymers) and accommodate
between different phases. Because many of these materials have implied
technological applications, materials chemistry has a strong link between basic
science and many existing and freshly emerging technologies. While
chemistry-focused, the Materials Chemistry Program also provide as a bridge
between chemistry and the engineering and life sciences.
