  The History of Chemistry, its predecessor Alchemy, and the people   involved in it are often portrayed on postage stamps. Stamps   showing chemical formulae, structure, and laboratory glassware   are especially enjoyable topics for postage stamps. In addition   scientific units and constants have been honored on philatelic   issues. The metric system and mathematical equations related to   chemistry can be found on many issues. Stamps of the world   relating to chemistry and its history will be discussed.
