Medicine

Medicine is the mixture of compounds that serves the purpose of curing an illness
Chemistry is important in medicine because it allows researchers to create new drugs that can help the human body fight against illnesses. When a promising molecule is identified, chemistry is required to make sure that the correct version of the molecule is used. Molecules have a “right” and “left” version, which are produced from chemical reactions. They are known as enantiomers. Specific enantiomers are required to fit in different parts of the human body. An example would be that some bodily proteins only fit left enantiomers. Some enantiomers are dangerous, while others cannot be used because they do not fit correctly.
