A is best with parallellism in descriptive form
B) lacks parallellism by switching gear to possessive form for "his envisioning"
C) lacks parallellism by switching from descriptive mood to transitive mode in second half. Moreover, the end of underlined portion is clumsily written
D) lacks of parallellism again
E) chemistry is taken as a whole and as a field, not as quantifiable amount by adding a definite article

Will go with A.
"His" is redundant in B/E.
C - envisioned is awkward.
D - Critquing is wrong

It means all the studies on chemistry made after Robert Boyle.

Just like:

I have been working since March.

We have witnessed many writers since Thomas Hardy.

Only A stands on ||'ism.
This question is only testing parallelism and all options other than A are not parallel.

The last part of the question "....hoped to found" doesnt seem right.
However, (A) seems like a good answer compared to the rest although, "...as well as..." doesnt fit in perfectly.

Looks like a modifier SC, so we need a noun to follow.

'a critique' is required as that should point to humphry's essay
B,C --> lacks parallelism

A is the best choice.
