- Environmental science : Interdisciplinary scientific field that integrates physical and life sciences including physics, chemistry, biology, soil science, geology, and geography in the study of the physical environment and the solution of environmental problems.
- Biochemistry : The chemistry of living things; a field of both biology and chemistry.
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Decontamination : The efforts to safeguard property and people that have been exposed to chemical, nuclear, or biological agents.
- Environmental engineering : A field of engineering devoted to remediation of all forms of pollution.
- Aerosol : Tiny drops, or tiny particles, suspended in a gas.
- Air : A colorless, odorless and tasteless mixture of gases consisting mostly of nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) which is the part of Earth's atmosphere that humans and all other animals breathe in order to obtain the oxygen needed to sustain life.
- Air pollution : The presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air (air pollutants) that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects.
- Chemical compound : A chemical substance consisting of two or more chemical elements bonded in a fixed ratio; not a mixture.
- Chemical weapon : A weapon that cause death or disease by means of chemical interaction with the metabolism of the victim, as opposed to causing injury through blast, thermal, or other effects not on a molecular level
- Ecosystem : A space in which multiple biological species interact.
- Green chemistry : Add brief definition or description
- Natural environment : A term that encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth or some region of Earth.
- Pollutant : Any substance introduced into the environment that adversely affects the usefulness of a natural resource or the health of humans, animals, or ecosystems.
- Toxicity : A measure of the degree of harm to which a substance is capable of harming an organism exposed to the substance, and which generally increases with the level and extent of exposure.
- 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.
