The term dominant group appears to serve as an identifier used by authors of chemistry refereed journal articles to indicate an observation of phenomena in the process of analysis. At the more general level it may be a chemical entity such as a chemist, laboratory, or chemical species, or associated with chemistry in some way.
Def. a science that deals with
- the identification of the substances of which matter is composed,
- the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change, and
- the use of these processes to form new substances
is called chemistry.
Def. "a science that deals with the composition, structure, and properties of substances and of the transformations that they undergo" is called chemistry.
"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."

- Purpose hypothesis: dominant group is written into articles by authors for a purpose.
- Regional hypothesis: dominant group, when it occurs, is only a manifestation of the limitations within a region. Variation of those limitations may result in the loss of a dominant group with the eventual appearance of a new one or none at all.
- Source hypothesis: dominant group is a source within each field where a primary author of original research uses the term.
- Term hypothesis: dominant group is a significant term that may require a 'rigorous definition' or application and verification of an empirical definition.
Examples from primary sources are to be used to prove or disprove each hypothesis. These can be collected per subject or in general.

"Theoretical chemistry is the study of chemistry via fundamental theoretical reasoning (usually within mathematics or physics). In particular the application of quantum mechanics to chemistry is called quantum chemistry. Since the end of the Second World War, the development of computers has allowed a systematic development of computational chemistry, which is the art of developing and applying computer programs for solving chemical problems. Theoretical chemistry has large overlap with (theoretical and experimental) condensed matter physics and molecular physics."
"Molecular biologists, as the dominant group after the Second World War, made great advances (aided by ample financial support) and sometimes became quite arrogant."
