Lavoisier Preempted Gay-Lussac by 20 Years!
Laing, Michael
Journal of Chemical Education, v75 n2 p177-78 Feb 1998
Lavoisier showed that water was formed by chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. In Lavoisier's "Traite Elementaire" of 1789, he states that the reaction to form water requires exactly two volumes of hydrogen gas to react completely with one volume of oxygen gas. This was 20 years before Gay-Lussac studied the reactions between different gases. (PVD)
