Over the past century, chemistry has increased our understanding of the physical and biological world as well as our ability to manipulate it. The work carried out in chemistry laboratories around the globe continues to enable important advances in science and engineering. The chemical laboratory has become the center for acquiring knowledge and developing new materials for future use, as well as for monitoring and controlling those chemicals currently used routinely in thousands of commercial processes.
