A chemical property is any aspect of a substance which is only seen by means of a chemical reaction.

This is different from a physical property, which can be discovered without changing the substance's chemical structure.

Chemical properties can be used for building chemical classifications. They can be used to identify an unknown substance or to separate or purify it from other substances.
