Chapter 3 “After having made a few preparatory experiments, he concluded with a panegyric upon modern chemistry, the terms of which I shall never forget: ‘The ancient teachers of this science,’ said he, ‘promised impossibilities and performed nothing. The modern masters promise very little; they know that metals cannot be transmuted and that the elixir of life is a chimera but these philosophers, whose hands seem

Since Linus worked many Jobs, he had enough money to attend college. Linus Attended the Oregon Agricultural College. This is where Linus became more fascinated about chemistry. Linus also loved learning about Mathematics and Physics. When Linus was not studying , he was teaching Chemistry to people at the facility. Here he meets his future wife, Ava Miller. The two would also have 4 children. In 1922, Linus attended in the school, “California Institute of Technology.” Linus used X- Ray diffraction to understand how Atoms formed to make Molecules. This new found made him be awarded with a Doctorate in Chemistry/Math. In 1926, Linus went to Europe for 18 months. When Linus returned, he brought knowledge about chemistry that is still in todays

In 1903, he became Chairman of the Department of Chemistry at Harvard and 9 years later he was made Erving Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Wolcott Gibbs Memorial Laboratory.
The studies of chemistry and physics have shaped understanding of the world today. In fact, they have altered the mindset and reasoning of society, leading to an age in which discoveries are consistently being sought after and achieved. However, it must be noted that the origin for the basis of
Mendeleev had trained as both an academic chemist and a teacher at his father’s old college, partly because the college had known his father. He suffered from Tuberculosis at 20 and had to work mostly from his bed. When he graduated, he
