The Alchemical Quest, an exhibit featuring rare alchemical books of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries drawn exclusively from the collections of the Othmer Library of Chemical History, engages visitors in an exploration of the golden age of alchemy and encourages them to recognize alchemy as the root of modern chemistry. As the science of matter, alchemy had a wide range of applications, including metallurgy, distillation, chemical medicine, and transmutation. The exhibit also highlights two fathers of modern science, Robert Boyle and Isaac Newton, showing their involvement during this transitional period.
The Alchemical Quest will run from July 2, 2012, to December 7, 2012.
