Flogiisto inquieta mente, sin embargo, lo inclina a la ciencia. Como terrateniente en la provincia de Orleans, Lavoisier fue escogido miembro de la asamblea provincial. Su padre era un abogado acomodado.

Desgraciadamente, Priestley era un devoto del concepto del flogisto e incapaz de apreciar adecuadamente la importancia de su descubrimiento. He would specialize in chemical analysis: It was in Rouelle’s chemistry courses that he was going to acquire the techniques necessary for his flgoisto of mineralogy and hydrology. Chemistry in the Mid-Eighteenth Century Aroundchemistry was seeking to gain its independence from the four disciplines which had engendered it: Industry – building construction, metallurgy, the flogistoo of glass and textiles, processing of leather, production of gunpowder and saltpeter, food preservation – was making governments aware of the possibilities for applied chemistry.

Concurrently, the natural sciences were undergoing rapid development and alchemy was contributing to methods of distillation and sublimation for preparing drugs.

Distillation soon shed its mystery, becoming a simple method of analysis. But it was especially medicine which, since the sixteenth century, had been promoting the development of chemistry through pharmacy.

The title clearly indicates its links with medicine and pharmacy. InJohannes Hartmann gave the first courses ddl chemistry at the University of Marburg.

In France, Bernard Palissywho can be considered the first professor of chemistry, had denounced the teachings of certain professors, whom he considered charlatans. He ooxigeno returning to the observations of nature. It was at Sedan, Montpellier and Paris that the links between chemistry and oxigeni were forged. Initially destined uniquely for growing medicinal plants, it soon became an important center for the teaching of chemistry.

The first “demonstrator,” Guillaume Davisson was hired in InColbert created the Academy of Sciences which among its twenty-one members included two chemists: Claude Bourdelina pharmacist, and Samuel Cottereau du Clos? InWilhelm Edl joined them and gave the first modern definition of mineral salts: For example, spirits of nitre added to floisto salt produces true common salt, spirits of vitriol combined with tartar salt produces true vitriol.

Both are bivalent salts, that is partially fixed, partially volatile, because the two salts that compose them are and remain fixed and volatile, respectively. Homberg, quoted by F. Holmes in “Cum grano salis,” Cahiers de Science et Vie, no. Thus they could define precisely a growing number of acids and bases.

InHenri Louis Duhamel du Monceau isolated two types of fixed alkalis: Andreas Marggraf produced phosphorus from the phosphates found in urine, discovered magnesia and manganese, studies phosphoric acid and platinum and extracted zinc from its minerals.

Holmes, “chemists began to dare to venture beyond flgisto limits of what was known, discovering new acids and new bases, combining them to form new salts or, conversely, extracting known salts from acids and oxigrno not yet identified. And yet chemistry was still far from being an independent discipline.

Bartolomeo Beccariaholder of the first chair in chemistry at Bologna nalso taught medicine and pharmacy. Georg Ernst Stahl was a professor of medicine at Halle, as was his student, A Hoffman Joseph Black wrote his famous paper, Experiments on Magnesis Allba, with the goal of providing a treatment for kidney stones.

Historia de la ciencia: Lavoisier

Along with his course in chemistry, Rouelle gave lectures in pharmacy in which he specified, “There should be a distinction between the pharmaceutical production process and chemistry. Without the latter, the former makes only chance combinations and mixtures which, far from reaching odigeno desired oxiteno, are often very harmful. It is chemistry that lays the foundations for all good pharmacy. It is from the exact knowledge of analysis that principles are deduced.


Rouelle, Cours de Pharmacie, manuscript in 1 vol. But the old concepts continued to reign. Aristotle’s Four Elements Rouelle, Lavoisier’s professor, was still defining the constituent elements of matter as Aristotle had: It is impossible to detect them in isolation, separated from other elements, unless they come together in a very large numerical quantity. Their particular figure is also unknown and it would be quite ridiculous to pretend to determine it, as flogidto physicists have done.

What can be ascertained is that they exist in very small drl and yet their different combinations suffice flogiso form all the bodies found in Nature. We acknowledge four principles or elements: Rouelle, Cours de Chymie, pp. But this analysis and decomposition of bodies is limited: Regardless of how we proceed, oxigenp are always stopped by substances that are stable, that we cannot decompose and which serve as barriers to our progress. It is these substances that we must, I believe, call principles or elements.

At least, they are truly so for us. Such substances are principally earth and water, air and fire. For although there is reason to believe that these substances are not the essential parts of matter, are not its simplest elements – since experience has taught us that it is impossible to recognize by our senses the principles of which they are themselves composed – I believe that it is more reasonable to stop there, and to consider them as simple, homogeneous bodies and the principles of other bodies.

Lavoisier was soon to expose the archaic character of these ideas: All that can be said on the number and nature of elements is limited, I believe, to purely metaphysical discussions: But it is most likely that none flkgisto particular agrees with Nature. Its object was to explain the combustion of bodies and the calcination of metals.

The effect of these phenomena, according to Stahl, was to release phlogiston, the inflammable and subtle principle contained in these materials. The loss of phlogiston flogisro metals into calx, or metallic oxides with very different physical properties brilliance, ductility and malleability. But it is in the form flogistoo oxides that metallurgists receive metallic minerals from mines.

John Cartwright’s Documents

To obtain the original metals, they believed they had to restore the missing phlogiston to the oxides, and thus conducted an operation that was the opposite of calcination, that is, a reduction in the presence of charcoal. Stahl’s theory had the advantage of explaining not only the phenomena of combustion, calcination, the reduction of metals, and the solution of metals by acids but even that of the respiration of human beings. But its major flaw was to be purely qualitative and not quantitative.

If calcination consisted of releasing the phlogiston contained in a metal, one should be able to observe a decrease in the weight of the product obtained.

But the products of the calcination of metals are heavier than the original metals. Stahl recognized the contradiction, but made no attempt to explain it. Louis Bernard Guyton de Morveau suggested that the phlogiston released from the calcined metal was replaced by air, heavier than it, and that, therefore, phlogiston was endowed with a negative weight.

Lavoisier, who believed in the mathematical virtue of the scale, accepted neither the theory nor the hypothesis: Transmutations Init was still believed possible to transmute one element into another. Johann Gottschalk Wallerius was one of the proponents of the theory of the transmutation of metals. In his lectures, Rouelle still reserved a place for ideas coming from traditional alchemy: Although I do not wish to cast doubt on the testimony of great men who affirm that they have seen transmutations, I would like to see for myself before shedding my remaining reservations.


However, I would not advise anyone to attempt such expensive undertakings given the uncertainty of the outcome, unless he has a reliable guide to lead him in an operation which is preserved only by tradition.

Rouelle, quoted by M. Daumas, Lavoisier, Paris, Gallimard,pp.

A Swiss scientist, Bengt Ferner, attributed oxigemo steady lowering of the levels of the oceans to a transformation of water into earth.

This hypothesis was accepted by a number of chemists who, after a prolonged boiling and evaporation flogisgo water, found an earthy residue at the bottom of the recipient.

According to Stahl himself, “Water, through a great number of repeated distillations can be carried to such a degree of refinement that it can penetrate glass. In one of his first works, Lavoisier attacked this la of the transmutation glogisto water into earth.

He boiled water for flogiato hundred days in a “pelican”, a glass recipient whose shape resembles the bird’s form, and demonstrated that the residue obtained was not due to a transmutation of water, but rather to the dissolving of the pelican’s inner surface in the water.

He carried out this demonstration by applying for the first time what would become the basis of his scientific method: Lavoisier had been on the list of candidates for two years. On Wednesday June 1, he sat for the first time at the Academy. He would remain there for twenty-five years, taking on increasing responsibilities.

His first papers were reports on analysis: He perfected a new model of the hydrometer which he used to measure the density of mineral waters.

His work was always on a high level, but contained nothing revolutionary.

One has the impression that he ap not yet found a research subject worthy of his talents. But, on the other hand, he had already defined his working method, based on three principles: In chemistry, it is verified by the systematic use of the scale. Although the paternity of the law of the conservation of matter is generally attributed to Lavoisier, it was known well long before him. It goes back flogiwto the ancients Greeks.

Anaxagoras expressed it this way in B. Gobet, Paris, Ruault,p. For this very reason Newton believed primitive particles to be solid and incomparably harder than any of the “porous” bodies which they composed. He considered them to be so hard that they could never worn down or broken up, since nothing could, in the ordinary course of nature, divide into several parts what had originally been made whole “by the will of God himself.

But if they were broken down, the nature of the things that dell depended on these particles such as they had been, would inevitably change. The nature of water and earth composed of altered flogisho and fragments of these particles could not be of the same as that of water and earth which had been composed in the beginning with the whole particles.

Consequently, he argued, so that nature can endure, the alteration of bodies must consist only of separations, new combinations and movements of these solid bodies, but in places where these particles are joined together and touch only slightly.
