Chemistry Outside the Laboratory

Traditionally, many studies of chemistry focus on the work taking place in laboratories – but in reality chemistry has been practiced in so many other contexts: mining, agriculture, toxicology, courtrooms, medicine, domestic spaces, classrooms, and the list goes on.
