Chemical etimology
chemistry -

The word chemistry comes from alchemy, a name for a series of practices in earlier times which included elements of chemistry, metallurgy, philosophy, astrology, mysticism, and medicine.

Alchemy is often thought to be related to attempts to convert lead or other common ingredients into gold, but in the Ancient Age it studied many of the subjects of modern chemistry. Alchemy is defined by the early Greek alchemist of Egypt-4th century CE, Zosimos, as the study of the composition of water, movement, growth, manifest, disappearing, expelling the spirit from the body, and binding the spirit in the body.

The word alchemy comes from the Arabic word al-kīmīā (الکیمیاء). The word al-kīmīā is derived from the Greek word χημία (kemia) or χημεία (kemeia). Al-kīmīā may be derived from Ancient Egypt because the word al-kīmīā may be derived from the Greek word χημία (kemia), which is also derived from Kemi or Kimi, the ancient Egyptian name in Egyptian. It is also possible that the word al-kīmīā is derived from the word χημεία (kemeia), which means "poured together" (into the mold).
