The Department of General and Technical Chemistry is claimed to exclude the fields of biochemistry, chemistry of natural compounds, agricultural chemistry, and chemistry of inorganic materials. The central committee of the Communist Party is reported in Dec. 1963 to have divided chemical industry into 1 greater chemistry, measured in a capacity of millions of tons, and 2 small chemistry, measured in a production of hundreds of kilograms and tons to thousands of tons, only seldom reaching tens of thousands of tons. For the so-called greater chemistry, there are listed synthetic fertilizers and chemicals from petroleum hydrocarbons, natural gas, and coke. Techniques of value to this type of industry are catalysis and polymerization. For the so-called small chemistry, there are tens of thousands of industrial derivatives rather than the tens of substances of greater chemistry.
