Quotes by Antoine Lavoisier

About Antoine Lavoisier:

Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier is widely considered in popular literature as the "father of modern chemistry". This label, however, is more a product of Lavoisier's eminent skill as a self-promoter and underplays his dependence on the instruments, experiments, and ideas of other chemists.
