Download E-books The Chemistry of Alchemy: From Dragon's Blood to Donkey Dung, How Chemistry Was Forged PDF

By Cathy Cobb, Harold Goldwhite

A special approach to the historical past of technology utilizing  do-it-yourself experiments besides short old profiles to illustrate how the traditional alchemists stumbled upon the technological know-how of chemistry.

Be the alchemist! discover the legend of alchemy with the technology of chemistry. take pleasure in over twenty hands-on demonstrations of alchemical reactions. 

In this exploration of the traditional paintings of alchemy, 3 veteran chemists convey that the alchemists' quest concerned actual technological know-how they usually recount attention-grabbing tales of the sages who played those unusual experiments.

Why waste extra phrases in this bizarre deviation within the evolution of chemistry? because the authors exhibit, the writings of medieval alchemists could seem just like the ravings of brain-addled fools, yet there's extra to the tale than that.

Recent scholarship has proven that a few likely nonsensical mysticism is, actually, decipherable code, and Western eu alchemists functioned from a more impregnable theoretical starting place than formerly notion. that they had a guideline, in accordance with adventure:  separate and purify fabrics through hearth and reconstitute them into items, together with, after all, gold and the common elixir, the Philosophers' stone.

Their efforts weren't in useless:  by trial, by way of mistakes, by way of layout, and via endurance, the alchemists stumbled on acids, alkalis, alcohols, salts, and beautiful, strong, and colourful reactions--which may be reproduced utilizing universal items, minerals, metals, and salts.  

So assemble your vats and stoke your fires! prepare to make burning waters, peacocks' tails, Philosophers' stone, and, in fact, gold!
