The Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Chemical Science

Kalpna Kumari


Chemistry plays a important role in understanding the whole lot from viral composition to pathogenesis, advancement of vaccines and therapies as well as in the development of materials and techniques used by researchers, virologists, and clinicians. This study aims at providing brief overview of the contribution of chemistry in understanding and controlling the spread of corona virus [ 26, 27, 4, 9]. COVID-19 pandemic has affected several fields of chemical science. Major effect or change were observed in Environmental pollution such as air quality, water quality, and greenhouse gases. It also affected chemical industry [ 1, 3, 13, 14, 15, 16]. It has been observed by number of studies that anthropogenic activities are considered as one of the key drivers of environmental pollution. Since people’s social and industrial activities were blocked down for several months it was expected that pollution level of the environment got decreased. The Carbon release level has dropped drastically. This pandemic has increased interest in studying chemical science and attitude of research towards chemical science [ 2, 5, 6, 41, 35, 36].
