'Chemistry students have control over water, air, fire and ice and can transmute anything under the law of equivalent exchange.'
I think power over elements like water, air, fire and ice would be better suited to Geography students.
Geography means learning about the rain cycle and how rivers and lakes form and the tide works (water), the formation and life cycle of volcanoes also how forest fires occur and their affect upon the environment (fire), how air currents and pressure systems work (air), and the formation and life cycle of glaciers and how the melting polar ice affects sea leavel (ice)
Whereas Chemistry is, to quote that other wiki, 'Chemistry is the science of matter, especially its chemical reactions, but also its composition, structure and properties. Chemistry is concerned with atoms and their interactions with other atoms, and particularly with the properties of chemical bonds.'
You could give the Chemistry students the ability to create a chemical mixture for almost any use? Examples being they could create a pheramone that causes people to become strongly attracted to or extremely violent towards whoever has the scent of that pheramone upon them. The strongly attracted pheramone could also double as making the affected person more controllable since teenagers 'in love' are usually willing to do a lot for the person their 'in love' with. They could even try to mix up a truth serum.
Or they could mix a batch of chemicals to create a volatile explosive or create a strong acid to burn through walls or even a strong glue that sticks someone to the spot and can be dissolved only with the proper counter agency. Or they could use their knowledge of elements and their properties to create a sword or weapon made of incredibly strong nigh unbreakable metal. They could use their knowledge to create smoke bombs or sleep gas, etcetera.
Theres a very long list of possibilities when it comes to chemistry and the students would be a very creative bunch always experimenting with new theories and ideas for chemical mixtures. They would probably cause a lot of random explosions by mixting volatile chemicals together just to see what would happen.
Also a truly good chemistry student could probably qualify for that mind over matter power because they would have the understanding of the composition, structure and properties of matter, how it works , how to control it, how to make or unmake it, etcetera.
