Abstract

CHEMISTRY AND CONSUMER PRODUCTS

K. Srilatha*

ABSTRACT

It is almost impossible to comprehend all the products of chemistry that enrich our lives. It would be befitting to say that the ways in which the modern life differs most from that of earlier times resulted from the various applications of chemistry in our daily lives. The food we eat, the air we breathe, the clothes we wear, the medication we take are chemicals. Our lives are transformed by chemical discoveries such as: polymers, pharmaceuticals, insecticides, optical glass, ceramics, computer chips, cosmetics, adhesives, transport fuels and fertility agents. We live in beautifully furnished and decorated houses and apartments constructed using chemical products, metal alloys and chemical paints. The food we eat supplies the chemicals necessary to sustain life. Our foods and farm produce are chemically tested for purity, vitaminized, packaged and refrigerated for protection. We buy medicines and drugs, cosmetics, cleaners, coatings, fertilizers, pesticides, and fuel in enormous quantities, for their chemical action. We were clothing made of synthetic fibres and synthetic dyes and use soaps, detergents and toothpastes designed by chemists. The morning news paper is a printed on paper with inks manufactured by a chemical process with colourful pictures made possible by chemists. Our means of communications and transportation are heavily depended on the products of chemistry. There are different brands of a product available in supermarkets. The most expensive brand may or may not necessarily be better than others. Cosmetics, soaps and detergent industries do a lot of advertising for their brands of products claiming superiority of their brands even though most of the brands are more or less similar in quality. Expensive advertising adds to the widely advertised brands thus making them dearer. Most highly advertised cosmetics and toiletries are made from similar and inexpensive ingredients and yet may have extremely expensive price tags because of fancy container and a label showing picture of a famous model.
