In doing so, however, it has been assumed that the relationship between chemistry and physics does not raise any particular problems of its own. Thus, as in many discussions of the appropriateness of chemistry and physics as an example of pure reduction, the relationship between chemistry and physics has been taken by some to represent a paradigmatic case of true supervenience. As an example to contextualise the supervenience argument, Scerri & McIntyre (1997) consider the property of smell. If two chemical compounds were synthesised out of elementary particles in an identical manner, they would share the same smell.
