Are extracts considered alchemical items for the purposes of swift alchemy?
And what about mutagens and bombs?
Do this items benefit from the halved creation time?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Bombs don't have any "creation time" other than the daily limit and the standard action to throw them. Preparing them is considered a part of resting, just as a cleric praying for his spells or a Wizard studying his spellbook. \$\endgroup\$ – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 7 '15 at 12:49

No. Alchemical Items are a specifically defined class of items that require a Craft (Alchemy) check to create. Examples include Alchemist's Fire, Acid, Poisons, Smelling Salts, Smokesticks, etc. Further examples can be found here, here, and here

Potions are considered Magic Items, and Extracts, Bombs, and Mutagens are all class features that don't require a skill check. Thus, Swift Alchemy doesn't apply to any of them.
