Chemicals and Space

Chemicals are any substance with a distinct molecular composition that is produced by or used in a chemical process. The chemical process industry is an industry in which raw materials undergo chemical conversion during processing into finished products. Physical conversions common to industry includes the traditional chemical, petroleum, and petrochemical industries.

Space exploration will make available new raw materials. In turn, these new materials, in some scenarios, will enable or enhanced space operations. New chemical processes will be required to take advantage of these off-Earth resources, which may located in challenging environments.
