Chemists are scientists who are proficient in chemistry. Chemists usually have a bachelor's degree with a strong background in chemistry, physics and math. Post graduate degree is often required in the field of research. Field specialization includes: Biochemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, nuclear chemistry, environmental chemistry, physical chemistry and quantum chemistry among others. Furthermore, some countries require Chemists to pass a licensure exam before practicing.

The tasks of a chemist are:

● To study the structure of matter and its properties.
● To explain and illustrate these properties in quantity and specifying its component atoms and the mass of molecules.
● They also measure substance proportions and reaction rates of the chemical properties.
● Those who work in research, studies chemical substance which often lead to the development of a certain product. In this kind of research work, chemists usually do lab tests before the product is finalized.
● Those who work in production and quality control usually works with Chemical Engineers to develop ingredients and procedure to manufacture a certain product. They also supervise the lab testing of these ingredients and procedure to ensure that it is feasible.
● Those working in pharmaceutical laboratory designs synthesize and developed pharmaceutical drugs. They identify, create and develop chemicals which can be used and suitable for medicinal purposes. They also study the chemical contents of existing medicines.
● Chemists working in the chemical industry help in the formulation and development of raw materials to a number of products ranging from oil to metals and other minerals.

Chemists are usually employed in the chemical industry, pharmaceutical companies, manufacturing plants, hospitals, food processing plants, research organization and the academe. There are also Chemists employed by Government agencies and they usually work in agriculture, pollution control, and treatment of water and sewers. Some even serves as consultants.
