Chemists research and test the physical and chemical make-up of substances and materials to determine their composition. They also develop and improve the chemical make-up of products, and help streamline the processes involved in doing this. They conduct experiments, write reports based on their findings, develop theories, and test techniques and processes for creating and manipulating certain substances. They develop practical applications for their experimental and research findings, and develop quality control and safety procedures. Chemists may work anywhere in the State, in organisations and institutions ranging from universities, to mining and environmental facilities.
