We’re history!

Chemical Heritage is the magazine of the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Published three times a year, the 48-page color magazine tells the story of chemistry as a human endeavor, one that is part of our wider culture. Chemical Heritage provides a place where history, the arts, and science can meet.

Our pages chronicle the long history of processed food, chemistry in World War II internment camps, the secrets of alchemy, the history behind climate engineering, and even why General “Stonewall” Jackson thought he heard delightful music as his arm was being sawn off.
