Tutor description

As the Industrial Revolution moved forward into the 19th century, was a shift in the focus of chemistry occurred. No longer interested in only being a field of study that would solely benefit the textile industry, chemistry moved away from heavy chemical processes to what today is known as organic chemistry. This shift produced both good and bad discoveries. According to Kevin Kitano and Anthony Morejon (authors of an Internet web site dedicated to the industrial revolution), during the 1800s over 70,000 chemical compounds were broken down, and the first plastics were developed. Along with those advancements, however, there also were two discoveries that would prove more harmful than helpful in the long run.
