With the rapid development of carbon chemistry after 1860, a considerable number of chemists, especially in Germany, devoted all their attention to this branch of the subject. Chemistry therefore became divided into organic and inorganic specialisms, and towards the end of the century physical chemistry began to emerge as a third discipline. The progress in carbon chemistry outshone that made in other areas until the 1890s, when new discoveries and theories relating to coordination compounds signalled the coming of age of inorganic chemistry.
