What Are Fine Chemicals?

Fine chemicals are what chemists consider a single, pure substance. There is only one type of chemical with one complex structure in this type of substance, and it does not involve the mixing of two or more chemicals like specialized substances do. They are similar to commodity chemicals in regard to consisting of only one type of chemical, but that is where the similarities end.
