Transitions to the Future Knowledge in Depth Glossary Bibliography Summary Chemistry is a science, the principles of which are central to understanding all phenomena at a molecular level. Many of the other science disciplines, and the technology-oriented disciplines engineering also deal with the things of the world, from advanced composites that find potential use in internal combustion engines to body functions, including thought processes as well as the thoughts themselves. Thus, understanding in such diverse fields of human endeavor, ultimately, rests on the application of fundamental chemical ideas associated with the properties of molecules.
2 Historically, chemistry and humanity have existed in a symbiotic relationship because of the perceived societal usefulness of the subject. Initially, when the principles of chemistry were unknown, the chemical arts were primarily used to benefit the ruling classes, e.g. in the development of decorative items, which represented a relatively small fraction of humanity. But chemistry slowly, then rapidly, became an important, if invisible, component of a widening circle of humanity until now, when we find that the results of the application of chemistry are pervasive in our global society. It is safe to say that there is no single person on earth that is not or cannot be affected by the application of chemical ideas. The worldwide need for energy, food, and materials to make things from machines to bone-compatible substances, and health needs are all affected by the careful and clever applications of core chemical ideas. The widespread societal needs in these areas of human activity have engendered an important international chemical enterprise and, with it, the potential to affect the environment adversely. Environmental issues themselves are responsive to solutions based on chemical ideas, as are the implications of resource depletion driven by the widening needs of a global society. The future of the chemical enterprise the developing subject, the practitioners of chemistry, and the chemical industry is now faced with sustaining the development of the promise of chemistry. Sustainability implies the promotion of growth for the benefit of humanity and its attendant benefits for society without depleting resources or adversely affecting the environment. 1. Introduction Chemistry is a science a system of knowledge covering truths or operations of fundamental laws that are concerned with the physical world. It has not always been so. Since recorded time began, what we now call chemistry was an art a system of methods employed in a set of activities, a craft, or a trade. As such it became intertwined with human development from the earliest times, a condition that persists today The Central Science Chemistry has achieved the status of the central science since it deals explicitly with the molecularity of the world (Figure 1). Everything in the world from material objects to the storage of thoughts in the human mind (including the brain itself) has a molecular basis. Thus, it should not be surprising that, as mankind faces problems, whether they be practical ones or those associated with subjects that are key to understanding the development of basic ideas in ancillary and associated disciplines, solutions arise from considerations of molecular-level arguments; in other words, from the application of core chemical principles. The question marks (??) on the Venn diagram in Figure 1 represent a molecular-level discipline that has not yet been defined. When this unknown discipline arises in the future and it has a molecular basis, progress will be dependent on the application of chemical concepts.
3 Figure 1. A Venn representation of the centrality of chemical thought to associated disciplines A very large number of chemistry-driven applications can be delineated, but only a few will be presented to illustrate the basic relationships of chemistry to other areas of societal interest. 2. Chemistry Past Historically, the art of chemistry was employed to create or produce chemical substances that are intermediates used to make a variety of useful materials and for other important societal uses, e.g. for agriculture, soaps and detergents, dyes, and pharmaceuticals. That trend continues today and is expected to continue into the future. In this section, we present a brief review of historically significant, chemically-related, vignettes as a preview of a discussion of the future uses of chemical concepts Metals and Alloys The chemical arts reach back to antiquity. Our historical records begin only about 3000 B.C.; before this era, methods used by early practitioners were handed down orally. Worked gold objects are known from earliest times, the Neolithic age, but little of the chemical arts was necessary in the use of gold because the substance is often found as the native metal. Similarly, copper, which also can be found in its native state, was worked by North American aborigines. Copper objects appear with the earliest human remains (c B.C.) found in Egypt and Mesopotamia. The invention of bronze an alloy of copper and tin represents an important event in the evolution of the chemical arts because elemental tin is not found in nature and to make bronze requires the winning the chemical extraction of tin from an appropriate ore followed by the alloying procedure. The most common naturally occurring compounds are oxides, e.g. cassederite, which is essentially SnO 2 ; the elemental tin can be won using an appropriate reducing agent, to use modern terminology. Extracting elemental tin from one of its compounds is a chemical process. Most of the early chemistry developed without theory to guide it. The earliest bronze pieces have been dated at about 3000 B.C.
4 Interestingly, Egyptian and Mesopotamian bronzes sometimes contain lead in place of tin and, occasionally, antimony, as do some early Chinese bronzes Glass Glass is the hard, inert, transparent material made by heating together a mixture of substances such as sand (SiO 2 ), limestone (CaCO 3 ), and soda (Na 2 CO 3 ) at a sufficiently high temperature about 1400 to 1500 C, just below the melting point of iron. These materials react to form a viscous liquid. When this liquid is taken from the furnace, it becomes more viscous as it cools until about 500 C when it becomes a transparent solid the material we call glass. The history of glass reflects the symbiosis of chemistry with the needs of society. Initially, glass making was an art that produced materials of variable properties. But the chemical compositions of modern glasses, in contrast, are carefully controlled to produce materials with appropriate physical and chemical properties for specific applications. From one point of view, glass is as old as the vitreous glaze on pottery, which can be described as a glass. It is thought that glass making originated in western Asia around 3000 B.C.; initially, only beads and similar small objects were made of glass, but glass vessels appeared around 1500 B.C. Fragments of glass vessels have been found on western Asiatic sites in strata of the late sixteenth and early fifteenth centuries B.C. Egyptian glass appears to have first been made in the reign of Thutmose III ( B.C.). Thutmose achieved a series of Asiatic conquests in 1481 B.C. and glass workers brought back to Egypt from those conquests were probably used to set up a glass industry in Egypt. This transfer by conquest is probably one of the earliest examples of a very efficient method of diffusion of technology/science from one people to another. The development of Egyptian glass technology itself was also strongly influenced by knowledge derived from Mesopotamia. For example, the decorations on all Egyptian glass from about 1300 B.C. onward is very similar to that found on glass objects from Ur, an ancient Sumerian city in Mesopotamia on a site in present-day Iraq. The extensive use of cobalt in Egyptian glass the cobalt blue glass also supports this idea because the nearest sources of cobalt were in southern Mesopotamia. By A.D. 50 glass had become as widespread as pottery in Rome. It had become a utilitarian material cheap, attractive, impermeable, and widely available and formed a new class of material culture that continues today. Glass making was a closely held secret, but the ability to make glass moved relentlessly from the Middle East to Europe and England. Each part of the world added to the overall art, and many of these improvements involved chemistry. Thus, glass that contained (accidentally) iron compounds had an undesirable greenish to brown cast as the compounds became oxidized and, in effect, decolorized the glass. The Venetians used pyrolusite to make glass as clear as fine rock crystal. Pyrolusite contains manganese dioxide (MnO 2 ), an oxidizing agent, which reacts with the iron compounds that cause the green-brown color. At the same time that the Venetians were producing a fine clear glass, they discovered how to make glasses in many beautiful colors blue, white, green, purple, and turquoise by adding certain inorganic substances that reacted with the components of glass to produce colored compounds. In England, the rapidly expanding glass industry competed, often unsuccessfully, with iron making for a diminishing fuel supply. The switch from
5 charcoal to coal in iron smelting was a benefit not only to the iron makers but also to the glass industry. The English contribution to glass making was the development of lead crystal glass, which had a very high transparency and a high infractive index, giving it an ability to sparkle in the light falling on facetted or angular cut surfaces. In the nineteenth century, glass works were generally forest-related industries. Wood was required for the fires to melt the mixture that would become glass; it also yielded potash, one of the basic glass components, which was extracted from wood ashes by leaching. Glass workers near the sea used sea plants as sources of soda, which gradually replaced potash. The French chemist Nicolas Leblac ( ) succeeded in making soda from common salt, sulfuric acid, and limestone, which is a form of calcium carbonate. Leblac went bankrupt as a result of the French Revolution, but the need for soda continued to increase. That need was satisfied by Ernest Solvay ( ), a Belgian chemist. In the Solvay process, brine (a saturated aqueous solution of NaCl often found naturally) is treated with ammonia and carbon dioxide, produced from the thermal decomposition of limestone (CaCO 3 ): CaCO CaO + (1) 3 CO 2(g) The dissolution of ammonia produces ammonia hydroxide. NH 4 + 3(g) + H 2O NH + OH (2) And the dissolution of CO 2 produces bicarbonate ion. CO (3) + 2(g) + H 2O H 2CO3 H + HCO3 Steps 2 and 3 correspond to the production of a solution of ammonium bicarbonate: NH 3 CO 2 + H 2O NH 4HCO3(aq) + (4) which in the presence of the brine solution yields sodium bicarbonate. NH + + (5) 4HCO3(aq) NaCl(aq) NaHCO3(s) NH 4Cl(aq) Of all the possible species present in this solution, NaHCO 3 is the least soluble and this substance precipitates. The solid NaHCO 3, when heated, produces soda, Na 2 CO 3, and CO 2. NaHCO Na CO + H O + CO (6) 3(s) (g) An interesting characteristic of the Solvay process is its chemical efficiency in producing a desired product, soda (Na 2 CO 3 ), from relatively common materials salt (NaCl), limestone (CaCO 3 ), and ammonia (NH 3 ). The CO 2 form in Step 6 can be recycled in Step 4. Ammonia can be obtained from the other product of Step 5
6 NH 4 Cl (aq) by treating the aqueous solution with calcium oxide obtained as the second product of Step 1. CaO + H 2O Ca(OH) 2 (7) Ca(OH) + NH Cl NH + CaCl (8) 2(g) 4 (aq) 3(g) 2(aq) The ammonia obtained in Step 8 is recycled to Step 2. Thus, the net result of the Solvay process is the consumption of salt (NaCl) and limestone (CaCO 3 ), and the production of soda (Na 2 CO 3 ); CaCl 2 (Step 8) is the only byproduct. Note that ammonia is not consumed chemically; its only loss occurs during mechanical handling. The Solvay process (like the earlier Leblac process) is an early example of the epitome of the symbiosis of chemistry and society: to take relatively simple substances that are easily obtained and produce more desirable substances. The Solvay process became the source of inexpensive soda, which advanced the production of inexpensive glass. Glasses with a wide variety of compositions exist. Chemical science has produced a large number of specialty variants: special formulations are used for lens making; a glass containing boric acid as a flux, replacing most of the soda in the standard glass composition, is used for ovenware and other high temperature uses; and glasses containing no soda are used for mercury vapor street lamps and for fiberglass used in light pipe applications Pigments The decorative arts, especially painting, have been dependent on the interaction of what we now call chemistry since the beginning of recorded history. Indeed, that interaction originally defined the chemical arts. Perhaps one of the oldest recorded pigments is Egyptian Blue, found on a sarcophagus dated from the Fourth Dynasty ( B.C.). Egyptial Blue is a copper silicate that can be produced by heating a copper-containing ore (like malachite) with sand (SiO 2 ), limestone (calcium carbonate), and soda (Na 2 CO 3 ). A mineral with the same composition (namely, CuO 2SiO 2 (CaO, Na 2 O) 2SiO 2 ), called cuprorivaite, exists in nature, but is so scarce that it could not have been collected in sufficient quantities to be used as a pigment by the Egyptians (or the other peoples that are known to have used it as a pigment). Thus, Egyptian Blue must have been a manufactured product. (The pigment should not be confused with the cobalt blue glass so prized by the Egyptians.) Other naturally occurring minerals with interesting colors have been used as pigments. Examples include orpiment, the yellow arsenic sulfide (As 2 S 3 ), and realgar, the red arsenic sulfide (AsS), which were known to the ancient Greeks and Romans. We do not strive to be exhaustive concerning the identity and nature of minerals used in art through the ages. Suffice it that the use of a number of such substances stretches to antiquity and humans have learned to produce materials that are naturally occurring if nature does not yield sufficient quantities of the desired substances. This is another hallmark of the symbiosis of chemistry with humanity.
7 The highly specialized use of pigments as artists materials has been expanded to include modern coatings (paints) that are designed to protect surfaces of all kinds from the effects of weathering. Both artists colors and the colors used in coatings have been expanded by using organic materials (dyes, vide infra) to increase the spectrum of colors available. Thus, the original artists interests in naturally occurring colorants is no longer the purview of the art community, but now extends to the common person, and it is not limited to naturally occurring substances. As with many substances of historical interest, modern pigments (and dyes) are human-made equivalents or are entirely new substances with superior qualities Bibliography TO ACCESS ALL THE 28 PAGES OF THIS CHAPTER, Visit: Aftalion F A History of the International Chemical Industry.
