Is it

Chameleon

Prefix:

CH is a chemical compound, credited to @Duck's comment

Infix:

I'm not really sure, but AMELIE is woman's name (or based one the Amelie movie)

Suffix

ON is a common word and can be found in the "questiON"

Another clue:

Chameleon have ability to mimic its environment, so we need try to find it
