Title: Chemical Translation: The Case of Robert Boyle's Experiments on Sensible Qualities
Author: Cecon, K
Abstract: The purpose of this work is to translate some of Robert Boyle's chemical experiments into the terms of modern chemistry. Most of the reactions involve sensible qualities, since there are on it considerable helpful tracking descriptions like heating, hissing, colour changing, etc. For a long time in the history of science, this procedure was seen as an exercise in anachronism which should be avoided at all costs. Recently many scholars have demonstrated that chemical translation can assist with historical work instead of causing confusion, and it may be very useful as a tool for the history of chemistry and for reproducing past chemical experiments.
