Application of chemistry on society...
« on: October 25, 2005, 09:48:03 AM »
I have an assignment in my high school chemistry class in which I need to pick a chemical that has/had a significant impact on society.  Things like gun powder and mustard gas have already been taken, but are good examples of chemicals that have had a major impact on society.

Thanks in advance.
