Abstract

Daniel Rutherford is credited with the discovery of nitrogen (N) in 1772. A.L. Lavoisier, the 18th century French chemist, called this element "azote" which translates to "without life" because free N is incapable of supporting life: a fitting name for this element given the paradoxes it presents to society and its role in global ecology.
