Synthesis and Characterization of Aspirin.
1 Lab Report: Synthesis of Aspirin.
However, the story is not simple. There is apparently evidence that Hoffmann's work was really directed by a Jewish chemist named Arthur Eichengr, whose contribution was covered up during the Nazi era. According to Eichengr's account (written in a Nazi concentration camp), the acetylsalicylic acid was first tested by his relative, a dentist, who found it to be quite effective in relieving pain during tooth extractions. Dreser (the boss), however, believed then that any good drug must conduct electricity. Since acetylsalicylic acid failed that test, it was originally rejected (the boss is always right). Eichengr secretly gave the powder to different dentists and physicians who confirmed the pain-killing effectiveness of the drug. Directors of Bayer, convinced by the clinical data, overruled Dreser and authorized the manufacture of aspirin. Dreser's contract with Bayer required any product from his laboratory to be credited to him, and so, in the eyes of the medical literature readers, he got all the glory (the boss is right, even when he is wrong).
