  • Chymistry (1661) – the subject of the material principles of mixed bodies (Boyle).[29]
  • Chymistry (1663) – a scientific art, by which one learns to dissolve bodies, and draw from them the different substances on their composition, and how to unite them again, and exalt them to a higher perfection (Glaser).[30]
  • Chemistry (1730) – the art of resolving mixt, compound, or aggregate bodies into their principles; and of composing such bodies from those principles (Stahl).[31]
  • Chemistry (1837) – the science concerned with the laws and effects of molecular forces (Dumas).[32]
