    i am going to guess it's a hypothesis, because the statement does not mention any experiments that back it up.

    it's not an observation, because observations refer to experimental data.

    it's not an inference, because the statement does not contain a premise. it's just a conclusion.

    it could be a theory, because this statement explains chemical phenomena, and it is supported by considerable amount of evidence.

    in any case, a theory is just a hypothesis that has stood the test of many experiments. we call newton's mechanics a theory even though it's been proven to be wrong (by Einstein).
