Chemical Digestion involves in turning large food molecules in smaller particles, it involves enzymes! And happens in the stomach, saliva and pancreas and so on! :D

Sorry, but no! Although the pancreas secrets some enzymes that help in the digestion process, the food doesn't ever reach the pancreas. It sends it's enzymes into the intestine by two channels(Wirnsurg and Santorini) and the enzymes do their stuff in the small intestine

pancreas is a way to narrow for all the foods that you've eaten...:mrgreen:
so, in order to participate, pancreas only sends its representatives which is its enzymes to the small intestine (duodenum)...
