Antoine Lavoisier was an 18th century French chemist, who was known for having recognized one of the most important chemical elements, oxygen. Not just that, he also identified the significance of this gas in the process of combustion. He developed an interest in science while still in school, and though he was a qualified lawyer, he ended up working as a scientist instead. This genius' contribution to the field of chemistry, in particular, is extremely indispensable, and forms the basis of several present day scientific theories. He stated that during the process of combustion, not only is a substantial quantity of air used, but there is also a visible gain in the mass of the substance. He improved upon the works of scientists like Joseph Black and Joseph Priestley, especially contributing to the experiments conducted by the latter. His work was so remarkable that the French government decided to hire him as a supervisor for the ammunition department, working specifically on the production of gunpowder. However, despite all his efforts, during the 'Reign of Terror' in France, twenty-eight Frenchmen, including Lavoisier, were convicted of crimes against the nation by the political leader Maximilien de Robespierre. Though the wrongly accused scientist was executed early in his life, he is idolized by scientists across the globe for having revolutionized the field of chemistry
