See the Web Links to the left for the answer.From Wikipedia:
Elizabeth Fulhame was a British, specifically Scottish, chemist perhaps best known for her 1794 work An Essay on Combustion. The book details her experiments on oxidation-reduction reactions and catalysis. As the title implies it also concerned theories on combustion. The book is seen by some as a precursor to the work of Jöns Jakob Berzelius. That stated she focused more on water as a catalyst rather than heavy metals. Her work was known in its time, as a description of it was written by Coindet, but aroused no interest.
