As Chemists, we are responsible for preparing various test solutions, compounds, and reagents to conduct and coordinate a multitude of test procedures. We also determine and analyze the chemical and physical properties of a compound such as structure, composition, relationship with other molecules, and reactions with organic and inorganic compounds. We confer with other scientists and engineers to analyze, interpret, and develop tests based on the results gathered from chromatography, spectroscopy, and spectrophotometry techniques. We also induce various reactions by controlling and introducing energy, heat, light, and specific chemical catalysts.
