Chemʹistry [kemʹistry]

is from the Arabic kimia, whence al-kimia (the occult art), from kamai (to conceal).

Inorganic chemistry is that branch of chemistry which is limited to metallic and non-metallic substances, which are not organised bodies.

Organic chemistry is devoted to organised bodies and their elements.
