For intrinsic and extrinsic properties in philosophy, see Intrinsic and extrinsic properties (philosophy).

An intrinsic property is a property of a system or of a material itself or within. It is independent of how much of the material is present and is independent of the form of the material, e.g., one large piece or a collection of small particles. Intrinsic properties are dependent mainly on the chemical composition or structure of the material.[1]

In biology, intrinsic effects originate from inside an organism or cell, such as an autoimmune disease or intrinsic immunity.
