Antoine Lavoisier

Antoine Lavoisier was one of the best-known French scientists and was a main government official. His theories of combustion, his growth of a way to classify the fundamentals and the first new textbook of chemistry led to his being known as the father of modern chemistry. He contributed too much of the research in the field of chemistry. He is quoted for saying, nothing is lost, nothing is created, and everything is transformed. He bore in Paris, France on Aug. 26, 1743. When he was eleven years old he attends a college called Mazain. For Lavoisier's last two years in college he creates an enormous deal of attention in science.

He received an excellent teaching and developed an interest in all branches of science, particularly chemistry. Abbe Nicolas Louis de Lacaill trained Lavoisier about meteorological examination. On 1763 Lavoisier expected his bachelor's degree and on 1764 a licentiate which allowed him to practice his profession. In his extra time he studied books of science. His first paper was written about gypsum, also recognized by hydrated calcium sulfate. He describes its chemical and physical property.
