About The Element Oxygen

Oxygen had been discovered by many different chemists prior to its discovery in 1774 and had failed to recognize it as a distinct element. Joseph Priestley and Carl Wilhelm Scheele discovered Oxygen and Priestly got all of the credit for the discovery. They both produced oxygen by heating mercuric oxide and in Priestly's experiments he called it "dephlogisticated air" and Scheele called his "fire air". And the name came from Antoine lavaisier which was incorrect that oxygen was necessary to form all acids. Oxygen was discovered by Joseph Priestley in England and 2 years earlier Carl Wilhelm Scheele discovered oxygen in Sweden.
