A chemical is either an element or a compound of elements. A chemical substance is composed entirely of a set of one or more kinds of atoms, ions or isotopes.

In comparison, a mixture consists of more than one chemical. For example, a solution is one or more chemicals dissolved in liquid.

The study of chemicals is a physical science called chemistry.
