- Chemistry : The science of matter, or of the electrical or electrostatical interactions of matter.
- Inorganic chemistry : The branch of chemistry involving the scientific study of the properties and reactions of all chemical elements and chemical compounds other than the vast number of organic compounds (compounds containing at least one carbon-hydrogen bond).
- Organic chemistry : The scientific study of the structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation (by synthesis or by other means) of chemical compounds of carbon and hydrogen, which may contain any number of other elements.
- Alcohol : A chemical compound that contains a hydroxy group (OH).
- Atom (science) : The defining unit of chemical elements.
- Carbon dioxide : Chemical compound composed of two oxygen atoms covalently bonded to a single carbon atom.
- Chemical elements : In one sense, refers to species or types of atoms, each species/type distinguished by the number of protons in the nuclei of the atoms belonging to the species/type, each species/type having a unique number of nuclear protons; in another sense, refers to substances, or pieces of matter, each composed of multiple atoms solely of a single species/type.
- Chemical formula : An abstract representation of the arrangements of atomic nuclei and electrons within a chemical compound.
- Gas : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Hydrocarbons : A class of molecules that contain only carbon and hydrogen atoms.
- International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry : A non-governmental scientific organization serving to advance all aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the international application of chemistry by scientists, engineers and others.
- IUPAC (A redirect)
- IUPAC nomenclature of organic chemistry : A systematic way of naming organic chemical compounds as recommended by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
- Liquid : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Methane : A chemical compound and alkane with the molecular formula CH4, and the principal component of natural gas.
- Molecule : An aggregate of two or more atoms in a definite arrangement held together by chemical bonds.
- Solid (state of matter) : The state in which matter maintains a fixed volume and shape (is neither a gas nor a liquid).
- Sulfuric acid : A chemical compound with the formula H2SO4, which is the diprotic acid of the sulfate anion SO4-2. It can be classified as an inorganic strong acid which is a dense, corrosive, liquid at room temperature and pressure.
- Water : A chemical compound with one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms (H20). It is often in a liquid form and makes up the bulk of the oceans, lakes, rivers and living organisms.
- Zinc : A chemical element, having the chemical symbol Zn, and atomic number (the number of protons) 30.
