- Chemistry : The science of matter, or of the electrical or electrostatical interactions of matter.
- Cocaine : A crystalline tropane alkaloid that is obtained from the leaves of the coca plant, that is both a stimulant of the central nervous system and an appetite suppressant; it is also a local anesthetic primarily used in otolaryngology
- Cryopreservation : A process where cells or whole tissues are preserved by cooling to low sub-zero temperatures.
- Density (chemistry) : A measure of the mass per unit volume of a gas, liquid or solid.
- Diamond : A stable allotrope of carbon where the carbon atoms are arranged in an isometric-hexoctahedral crystal lattice, commonly used in industrial applications and jewelry.
- Freezing : The removal of heat from a liquid until it crystalizes.
- Galileo Probe : An unmanned spacecraft sent by NASA to study the planet Jupiter and its moons.
- Geologic ages of earth history : Measurement of the geologic history of the earth which can be broadly classified into two periods: the Precambrian supereon and the Phanerozoic eon.
- Kilogram : The kilogram is the basic unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI, metric system).
- Lead : Chemical element number 82, a corrosion-resistant, dense, ductile heavy metal known to cause neurological problems.
- Materials science : A multi-disciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering.
- Molecule : An aggregate of two or more atoms in a definite arrangement held together by chemical bonds.
- Nucleation : The extremely localized budding of a distinct thermodynamic phase.
- 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.
- Protein : A polymer of amino acids; basic building block of living systems.
- Scullery maid : Lowest-ranked and often the youngest of the female servants, who acted as assistant to a kitchen maid, and reported to the cook or chef.
- Supercooling : Chilling a liquid below its freezing point, without it becoming solid.
- University of Manchester : Largest single higher education institution in the United Kingdom.
- Virology : The study of viruses, sometimes included in the field of microbiology.
- Vitrification : A process of converting a material into a glass-like amorphous solid that is free from any crystalline structure, either by the quick removal or addition of heat, or by mixing with an additive.
