He also recognized chemical elements as the ultimate residues of chemical analysis and. Antoine Lavoisier - Antoine Lavoisier - Oxygen theory of combustion: The oxygen theory of combustion resulted from a demanding and sustained campaign to construct an experimentally grounded chemical theory of combustion, respiration, and calcination.
