Chemistry can be partitioned into different branches. Which of the following is not a recognized branch of chemistry? (A) Inorganic chemistry, (B) physical chemistry, (C) organic chemistry, (D) analytical chemistry, or (E) particle chemistry.

Chemistry is the study of matter and what it consists of; its properties; its uses; how it changes, interacts, and reacts with other substances; and the conditions under which those changes occur. Chemistry is a broad field of science that can be divided into many branches and specialties.

The main branches of chemistry are physical chemistry, which studies the fundamental properties of substances and the particles that make them up. It’s the study of the principles of physics underlying chemical systems. Another main branch is inorganic chemistry, which studies the properties, behavior, and reactions of inorganic compounds. Inorganic compounds are compounds which are not carbon based. Another key branch is computational chemistry. This branch of chemistry uses computers to solve problems by creating models and simulations. We also have analytical chemistry. Analytical chemistry uses experimental techniques to identify, separate, or quantify substances. Another main branch of chemistry is biochemistry, which studies chemical reactions that occur in biological systems.

The last main branch of chemistry is organic chemistry, which studies the properties, behavior, and reactions of organic compounds, which are carbon-based compounds. So, of the options (A) to (E), the only one that is not a recognized branch of chemistry is particle chemistry.

So, the answer to the question “Which of the following is not a recognized branch of chemistry?” is (E) particle chemistry.
