The basis for modern Chemistry was laid by the pseudo-science of alchemy, which attempted to turn base metals into gold and silver through the agency of an elixir or Philosopher's Stone.

Chemistry was also spurred by the practical needs of Medicine and the theoretical considerations of natural Philosophy.
