If I have a chemical substance and I add another chemical

Customer Question

If I have a chemical substance and I add another chemical substance,compound,or molecule to the original chemical substance; does that change the chemical substance and make it a new chemical substance or is it considered substantially similar to the original chemical substance?

Not really I talking about any chemical substance, For example crack and cocain, Crack has cocain in it but is not considered substantially similar to cocain.

Hi, again and thanks for your very helpful reply.

Please allow me a little time to research this for you.

Hi again,

When you have a chemical substance and you add a different chemical substance to it, you're creating a new chemical compound (because it's made of more than one chemical substance), but, the new chemical substance may have qualities that are substantially similar to the original chemical substance, although the original one may have been altered in various ways, due to the addition of the other.

I hope that helps.
