Old ageIn Egipt mostly, human discover metals, paint (natural ink), ceramics, leather, etc.
AlchemyA secret group of people started to search for a philosopher stone for transmuting things (metal) in gold and the elixir of the life, something that gives completely knowledge. They never found these things but they shaped the foundations of chemistry.
IatroquímicaIatrochemistry (or chemical medicine) is a branch of both chemistry and medicine. The word "iatro" was the Greek word for "physician" or "medicine." Having its roots in alchemy, iatrochemistry seeks to provide chemical solutions to diseases and medical ailments.
Phlogiston teoryThe phlogiston theory is a superseded scientific theory that postulated that a fire-like element called phlogiston is contained within combustible bodies and released during combustion. The name comes from the Ancient Greek φλογιστόν phlogistón (burning up), from φλόξ phlóx (flame).
Periodic tableIn 1669 German merchant and amateur alchemist Hennig Brand attempted to created a Philosopher’s Stone; an object that supposedly could turn metals into pure gold. After this, all cientists discovered more elements and finaly created the periodic table.
Chemistry as a scientific activityDevelopment of the electric battery

Study of the chemical elements
The first cloned organism
(Every theory must be checked and proved)
Chemistry of todayChemistry of today is so extensive that it is divided into 5 branches to explain it:
Organic chemistry: molecules studied by carbon chains.
Inorganic Chemistry: study minerals and elements from the periodic table.
Analytical chemistry: study the composition of matter in qualitative and quantitative.
Biochemistry: study the composition of the six living.
Physical chemistry: studies matter from the point of physically and chemically.
Scientific methodIs a research method used mainly in the production of knowledge in science. For being called scientist, a research method should be based on the empirical and measurement, subject to the specific principles of scientific method testing is razonamiento. The cientific method, that has characterized much, consists mainly in systematic observation, measurement, experimentation, formulation, analysis and modification of hypotheses.
A 113 element in the periodic table is discoverA team of researchers from Japan Riken Center confirmed that they had identified the 113th element of the periodic table, synthetic character and the provisional name uruntrio.
