Inorganic Chemistry is the study of heteroatoms- that is to say, atoms which are not carbon or hydrogen- the molecules they form, the reactions they undergo and how this can be used in industry and in the lab. This field has received global attention in recent years with the success of transition metals as incredibly effective catalysts in organic synthesis, and the exciting possibilities inorganic compounds present in electronics and robotics.

Entropy or disorder, is a scientific measure of things spreading out, of uncertainty, or of the information required to describe something. Entropy always increases, so what impact does it have on our universe, our materials, and our concept of exist
