Caption: Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier, French chemist (1743-1794). After Englishman Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen in 1774, Lavoisier started examining its properties and those of air. He proposed a totally new theory which explained both the formation of metal oxides and allowed for the reactions which occur when burning wood or candles. Lavoisier came from a wealthy family. Because of his involvement with tax collection, he was tried and guillotined during the French Revolution.
