What are pure chemicals?

Pure chemicals are either elements or compounds that stand alone. For example, a mixture like a solution of table salt is not a pure chemical. However, unadulterated sodium chloride is a pure chemical. Metal alloys like brass are not pure chemicals but rather combinations of two or more metal elements that are not chemically bonded.

Pure chemicals are those available in unadulterated or non-diluted form and without any contamination. All pure chemicals are baryonic matter, whether in elemental or compound forms. The composition of these chemicals are known and their elements are in the periodic table.

Technically speaking, all baryonic matter we can see, touch, taste, smell, and manipulate are chemicals although they vary in purity. Baryonic matter refers to matter that is composed of atoms or at least protons and neutrons (plasma form). It is the normal matter that all of us are familiar with and composed of.

Baryonic matter can be in gas, liquid, solid or plasma form. The term baryonic refers to baryon particles that are governed by the laws of classical particle physics. They are distinguished from exotic and poorly understood matter like dark matter.

What are pure chemicals used for?
