There aren't, hence we can safely presume that alchemy doesn't work.
I do not think the public have ever been told what the proper definition of alchemy is, so the term is misrepresented, to the public.

If there really is such a term, what is its real definition.

So the idea that alchemy is about gold is wrong, and its all down to the public having the wrong idea of what alchemy means.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alchemy

No one has an exact definition of what it means.

In the eyes of a variety of esoteric and Hermetic practitioners, alchemy is fundamentally spiritual. Transmutation of lead into gold is presented as an analogy for personal transmutation, purification, and perfection
Quote from page above. Shows that alchemy is not about making gold, but something else.
