If you keep close attention to individual techniques, their year of
invention/discovery and the science behind them, things are pretty
straightforward and make good sense. It's just that it's hard to grasp
133 years (some would say 154 years) of history dense and rich in
interactions of individual pieces of science and technology,
especially because a lot of modern professional historians are amateur
chemists at best. On the other hand, amateur historians tend to care
about tabulating one liners of each invention with its date, with
little considerations of their interactions.

In order to get best possible inputs, it is quite essential to
describe your material, technique, goal, etc. in sufficient details.
