Chemistry is a science of change. At the heart of a chemical reaction, chemical change happens through the formation of new bonds (and breaking of of old ones). Properties such as the electronic and geometric structure of molecules and their energies are relevant to chemistry, but these are still static proper-ties. Chemical reactions on the other hand are dynamic, that is, something happens.
