Meaning

French chemist from the 18th century, often considered to be the “Father of Modern Chemistry”. Lavoisier helped construct the metric system, wrote the first extensive list of elements, and helped to reform chemical nomenclature. His most famous quote :

In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes.

His contribution in chemistry is similar to Heisenberg’s in quantum mechanics.
