The Hidden Talents of Chemistry

Pushing full throttle into the 21st century, the field of chemistry is going through major changes and garnering much attention. Last May, French academic and industrial actors in chemistry made a joint declaration announcing their commitment to develop sustainable–also known as green–chemistry, key to preventing pollution at its source. Throughout this feature, it is the entire discipline that will be explored, with its far-ranging applications into fields as vital as health (food quality analysis, water and air monitoring, or even natural cosmetic products), and as surprising as culture (what works of art can tell us about our heritage). Chemistry is indeed a source of innovation that is often active where it is least expected, as CNRS researchers are keen to explain.
