Cavendish who published over works. After stating that “inflammable air is either pure phlogiston, as Dr. Priestley and Mr. Kirwan suppose, or else water united to phlogiston,” Cavendish writes: “Either of these suppositions will agree equally well with the following experiments; but the latter seems to.

After the criticisms of Priestley’s work by Lavoisier and Cavendish (), it was on inflammable air that Priestley came to the first of his new subsequent (a) publication after the debates was unusual within his output, both in that it included a statement of mea culpa, Footnote 6 and in the degree to which he (a, p.

From a Paper read to the Philosophical Society of Edinburgh, inpublished in the second volume of the Physical and Literary Essays, Doctor Black appears to have discovered the affinities betw.

extensive tribute to Priestley (who also attached a letter to this edition), who in the early s adopted Kirwan ’ s theory of phlogiston. The Lav oisians paid close attention to Kirwan ’ s.

It is clear that Cavendish regarded the metal and not the acid as the source of "inflammable air". This was consistent with the compound nature of the metals postulated by the phlogiston theory. Further, Cavendish identified "inflammable air" with phlogiston and caused a number of scientists, including Priestley and Kirwan, to think the same.

He has historically been credited with the discovery of oxygen, having isolated it in its gaseous state.

As it was, however, Cavendish and Watt both claimed priority in the discovery; the advocates of Watt's claim resting their case mainly on the fact of his having first stated his views on the subject in writing, in a letter which he wrote to Dr.

Kirwan,’ was promptly replied to by Pierre Auguste Adet, the eminent chemist, then French ambassador to the United States. Priestley rejoined in a second edition of his work, to which Berthollet and Fourcroy replied.

By his discovery of "fixed air" (carbon dioxide), he laid the foundation for the remarkable series of researches on gases by Priestley and Cavendish that culminated in the so-called Revolution in Chemistry initiated by Lavoisier.
