As the central science that bridges biology and physics, chemistry explains the diversity of all things tangible at a molecular level. Understand chemistry, and you'll know why some things oxidize and others explode; why food is good to eat and coal is not. 30-Second Chemistry breaks the subject down into 50 bitesize elements that help us understand the nature of matter, including:
 Atoms, molecules and compounds
 States of matter
Chemical reactions and energetics
 Inorganic chemistry
Organic chemistry
 Nuclear chemistry
