Chemistry in the second half of the 20th century was dominated by complex organic synthesis and an increasing knowledge in the understanding of the molecular world brought about by the advances in quantum chemistry. This was the basis of a mutually beneficial partnership between academic and industrial chemists, particularly in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
In the 21st century it is clear that this era of Chemistry has ended. The 'new' chemistry that is slowly emerging is reaching into many areas of human endeavor and will deliver on the 20th century claim that chemistry is at the center of many disciplines through its almost unique ability to combine fundamental knowledge with practical advances.
