From the ancient, many scientists had classified lots
of elements but it was not systhematic and related to
There is no common methods that connected to each
Till the systematic periodic table had been discovered
by the French scientist.
Born in Paris, France in 1743.
His Father was Jean-Antoine Lavoiser which
worked French parliamentary counsel.
His mother was Émilie Punctis ,who mother was
the daughter of a wealthy attorney
Antoine Lavoiser was raised by his father and his
maternal aunt, Constance Punctis after the death
of his mother when he was 5 years old.
He started his early formal education by studying law
He turned to learn science when he was in college.
In the last two years in the college, he got interested
in scientific method and decided to studied
Contribution to Social and Science
He developed the first geological map of France and
the main water supply.
He did a lot of experiments and succeeded to prove
the theory that he stated out.
He always discuss the experiments that he did
with his college’s friend.
He always reflected and thougt about the
appropriate of the experiment that he did.
Contribution on Periodic Table
He started to investigate the elements
He had stated that element is an simple substance
that cannot be seperated it to the simplest.
Family and Career
Married to Marie-Anne Pierette Paulze.
Her wife’s job was translating works of English and
German scientists into French.
The couple published the first comprehensive book
Become a chemist, biologist, aristocrat, and tax-
Honored as “Father of Modern Chemistry”
Making a Periodic Table
He started to make his element’s theory by
discovering & investigating natural substances.
He concluded and defined that element is a substance
that cannot be separated and it is the simplest.
From the substance found, he determined lots of
Processing a periodic table
He drew up a list up of elements after he had proved
his element’s theory.
He classified the metals and non-metals’ elements
into classification table with four groups.
He was the first to classify metal and non-metal
as elements in 1789.
Elastic Fluid (G1) Non metal (G2) Metal (G3) Earth(G4)
Light Sulfur Cobalt Lime
Heat Phosphorus Copper Magnesia
Oxygen Carbon Gold Barita
Hydrogen Hydrochloric acid Platinum Alumina
Nitrogen Hydrofluoric acid Zinc Silica
Boric acid Mercury
Failure in making Periodic Table
Antoine’s Classification Table is not accepted by other
Some substances in the table are non-elements:-
Some substances are compound:-silica, magnesia,
Contribution of Antoine’s Periodic Table
His periodic table helped to understand and
remember the properties of elements easily.
Other scientists began to discover more elements
from the other natural substance.
They developed the periodic table nowadays more
Death of Antoine Lavoisier
He was arrested and accused for selling watered-down
Actually, his real crime was holding an high position
in a private tax company FermeGénérale, and misused
it to charge other people’s taxes.
His position was imposed by the other company’s
He also was an aristocratic committee for maintaining
expense in life.
He had become the French’s ENEMY.
He was judged by the revolutionary judge that he was
no more a scientist.
He was sentenced to death (beheaded) in the parade
of Paris, France in May 1794.
The other cause to put him death is his enemy:-Jean-
Paul Marat, chief of The Reign of Terror.
Marat wanted becoming the member Academy of
Science, but his essay was criticized by Antoine –
Marat tried to pursue Antoine to admit him but in
vain. He felt furious.
He found the chance to revenge when Lavoisier
arrested by portrayed he had bled white the poor.
Although he is accused and harmed by them, he had
contribute lots of science knowledge that we use until
We should thank for his contribution on chemistry.
