Chemistry: our Life, our Future

Abstract


In this note we look at a number of aspects relating to chemistry that have had a strong impact on the future of humanity. In particular, some technological innovations have been examined which have had a strong impact on daily life in general; the role of different chemical industries in the restoration of deteriorated monuments and works of art; the development of chemical products for carrying out restoration work; the financing of restoration and conservation; finally, mention has been made of the ethical principles and codes of conduct of the different chemical companies, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the fundamental principles for the correct use of chemicals.
