Caption: Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794), French chemist. Montage of images of the life and work of Lavoisier, some of the experiments he performed, and portraits of him and his wife and and collaborator Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze (1758-1836). Lavoisier is considered the founder of modern chemistry. He was instrumental in the use of accurate measurement in chemistry for the study of the composition of materials, oxidation and other combustion reactions. Lavoisier deduced that air consisted of oxygen and nitrogen. His book 'Methods of Chemical Nomenclature' of 1787 set the method of naming substances by their composition of elements, which is still used today.
