Joseph Priestley - Joseph Priestley - The discovery of oxygen and the chemical revolution: Priestley’s lasting reputation in science is founded upon the discovery he made on August 1,when he obtained a colourless gas by heating red mercuric oxide.

In fact, chemistry is known to date back to as far as the prehistoric times. Due to the amount of time chemistry takes up on the timeline, the science is split into four general chronological The theory of phlogiston arose in the late 17th Century when it was proposed by Johann Becher (who referred to it as 'inflammable earth').

It was continued in the work of Georg Stahl.
