• This is an impossible question to answer, as there is no one founder of chemistry and many who have some claim to that title. Here are some candidates: Jabir Ibn Haiyan, about 780, experimental chemistry, proportional law. Robert Boyle, 1627-1692, modern idea of elements. Antoine Lavoisier, 1743-1794, quantitative measurement. John Dalton, 1766-1844, atomic theory of chemistry. Joseph Priestley, 1783-1804, discoverer of oxygen. I'm sure there are many more.
  • alchemists XD
  • Robert Boyle (1627–91) is often called the founder of modern chemistry, but the honor is sometimes also given Antoine Lavoisier, 1743–94. The basic ideas of element and compound were first formulated by the Greek philosophers during the period from 500 to 300 B.C.
