The chemical coloring agents used in makeup and nail polish would not be possible without an understanding of the chemicals involved.
The eradication of a number of diseases and major contributions to improving human health, have been made by modern chemical discoveries. Some important contributions in this field are life saving drugs and prophylactics, i.e., disease preventing serum and vaccines, anesthetics and antiseptics and disinfectants and germicides. Chemistry plays an important role in most industrial processes. Important examples are manufacture of synthetic fibre like rayon, nylon, Dacron, orlon etc., the plastics like Bakelite, Teflon, polythene etc. and many more things of our use like - paints, varnishes, enamels, dyes, cement, glass and ceramics and extraction of metals like silver, magnesium, gold, iron
