As a student, other than picking up the odd vignette of chemistry history, I never really had the time for it (there is a some kind of joke in there somewhere).
I was too busy trying to learn the chemistry, not it’s history.
Now that I know a bit about it (or so I keep telling myself) I have the luxury of delving into its history.
You may be different from me and already have a keen interest. I stumbled across this little website 🙂
