Chemistry is not just about mixing A and B together to get C. Granted some of chemistry is like that but you need to remember that the hard part is working out what you need to add, how much, when to add, how to purify, is what I got what i expceted, stereocontrol, getting a good yeild etc....thats just synthetic chemistry.

 

Chemistry also involves the study of kinetics of reactions (i.e. how fast they go), determining mechanisms (the route a reaction takes), theoretical chemistry (using computer models to estimate how certain reactions may proceed), structural studies (the structure and arrangement of atoms etc)

 

So no chemistry is not just about mixing stuff together!
