Isaac Newton wrote at least one hundred thirty one manuscripts, totaling approximately one million words, on the subject of alchemy, work that would today fall under the general rubric of "chemistry". With the support of the National Science Foundation, this scholarly online edition is one part of an integrated project that combines new research on Newton's chymistry with an online edition of his manuscripts. In the future, this edition will include all of Newton's chymical writings in word-searchable form with annotations indicating their sources and the degree of Newtonian input into them.
The Chymistry of Isaac Newton site is a project that will give researchers access to Newton's writing on Chemistry, a field for which the scientist is not well known. In the future, the project will be an important supplement to other sites such as the comprehensive Newton Project at London's Imperial College; however, the project is just getting off the ground and only one manuscript is available at this time.
