Chemistry studies the composition, structure and properties of matter. Matter is essentially everything that occupies space and has mass. Also, reactions between substances are studied. Chemistry is of central importance, not least because it serves as a bridge between other sciences such as physics, geology, biology, materials science, etc. Chemistry is a very comprehensive discipline that includes a large number of branches that are usually divided according to the type of matter they concern.
