Egyptian EtymologyEdit

I've read somewhere an alternate etymology: that it derives from the Egyptian word for Egypt (Khemt) because chemistry was practiced in the Temple of Ptah at Memphis. Is this just a folk etymology? —This comment was unsigned.

Could be. See “chemistry” in Douglas Harper, Online Etymology Dictionary, 2001–2018.. DCDuring TALK 02:57, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
