ö Wöhler, 1928 K + C + 4 Cl + 4 C 2 2 Friedrich Wöhler Annalen der Physik und Chemie 1828, 88, Significance: Wöhler was the first to make an organic substance from an inorganic substance. This was the beginning of the end of the theory of vitalism: the idea that organic and inorganic materials differed essentially by the presence of the vital force present only in organic material. To his mentor Berzelius: I can make urea without thereby needing to have kidneys, or anyhow, an animal, be it human or dog Friedrich Wöhler, Polytechnic School in Berlin Polytechnic School at Kassel University of Göttingen Support for vitalism remained until 1845, when Kolbe synthesized acetic acid from carbon disulfide Ph Br Br Δ α acrose Ph 2 2 Ph aq.

Isoprene itself is considered the only hemiterpene, but oxygen-containing derivatives such as prenol and isovaleric acid are hemiterpenoids. Monoterpenes consist of two isoprene units and have the molecular formula C1016. Examples of monoterpenes are: geraniol, limonene and terpineol. Sesquiterpenes consist of three isoprene units and have the molecular formula C1524. Examples of sesquiterpenes are: farnesenes, farnesol. (The sesqui- prefix means one and a half.) Diterpenes are composed for four isoprene units and have the molecular formula C2032. They derive from geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate. Examples of diterpenes are cafestol, kahweol, cembrene and taxadiene (precursor of taxol). Diterpenes also form the basis for biologically important compounds such as retinol, retinal, and phytol. They are known to be antimicrobial and antiinflammatory. Sesterterpenes, terpenes having 25 carbons and five isoprene units, are rare relative to the other sizes. (The sester- prefix means half to three, i.e. two and a half.) Examples of sesterterpenes are geranylfarnesol. Triterpenes consist of six isoprene units and have the molecular formula C3048. The linear triterpene squalene, the major constituent of shark liver oil, is derived from the reductive coupling of two molecules of farnesyl pyrophosphate. Squalene is then processed biosynthetically to generate either lanosterol or cycloartenol, the structural precursors to all the steroids. farnesyl pyrophosphate Tetraterpenes contain eight isoprene units and have the molecular formula C4064. Biologically important tetraterpenes include the acyclic lycopene, the monocyclic gamma-carotene, and the bicyclic alpha- and beta-carotenes. Polyterpenes consist of long chains of many isoprene units. atural rubber consists of polyisoprene in which the double bonds are cis. Some plants produce a polyisoprene with trans double bonds, known as gutta-percha. a C I Et 2 C C C 2 Et aq. Cl 2 C 2 C C 2 Ac 2 heat C 2 fuming Br C 2 1) MgI 2) aq.

It is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions, including parts of the Americas (22 countries), Asia, and Africa. After a period of between two weeks and several months (occasionally years) spent in the liver, the malaria parasites start to multiply within red blood cells, causing symptoms that include fever, and headache. In severe cases the disease worsens leading to hallucinations, coma, and death. -from Wikipedia The life cycle of malaria parasites in the human body. A mosquito infects a person by taking a blood meal. First, sporozoites enter the bloodstream, and migrate to the liver. They infect liver cells (hepatocytes), where they multiply into merozoites, rupture the liver cells, and escape back into the bloodstream. Then, the merozoites infect red blood cells, where they develop into ring forms, trophozoites and schizonts which in turn produce further merozoites. Sexual forms (gametocytes) are also produced, which, if taken up by a mosquito, will infect the insect and continue the life cycle. References to the unique periodic fevers of malaria are found throughout recorded history, beginning in 2700 BC in China Malaria was the most important health hazard encountered by U.S. troops in the South Pacific during World War II, where about 500,000 men were infected. Sixty thousand American soldiers died of malaria during the orth African and South Pacific campaigns. Europeans brought malaria to the new world in 1500ʻs. The Peruvians would mix the ground bark of trees with sweetened water to offset the bark's bitter taste, thus producing tonic water. Spanish Jesuit Missionaries in Peru first learned of the healing power of a tree bark in I 1640, the Countess of Chinchon-- consort to the Spanish Viceroy of Peru-- was saved from death by administration of a native tonic made from the bark of a tree know as quina-quina (later cinchonia bark) by local people. Afterwards, tonic bark soon became widespread in popularity in Europe. Initially resisted in England due to the association with the papacy (bark at that time were known as Cardinalʼs powder or Popeʼs powder. liver Cromwell, the Puritan who overthrew King Charles I in the 17th century English Civil War, preferred to treat his fevers with mercury and bloodletting, rather than take a Jesuit powder (he died) from Wikipedia and Molecules that Changed the World by icolaou In Africa a child dies every 45 seconds of Malaria, the disease accounts for 20% of all childhood deaths. quinine quinidine cinchonidine cinchonine 1820: Quinine was isolated and named in 1820 by French researchers Pierre Joseph Pelletier and Joseph Bienaimé Caventou. The name was derived from the original Quechua (Inca) word for the cinchona tree bark, quina or quina-quina , which roughly means bark of bark or holy bark .

Rabe: Universities of Jena, Prague and amburg 1908: proposed the correct structure of quinine 1918: Rabe and Karl Kindler synthesize quinine from quinotoxine 1935: Rabe forced by the azis into early retirement from his position as Director of the Institute in amburg. This was retaliation because Rabe had removed a notice from the notice board notifying of a boycott against Jewish students at his Institute. Rabe continues to conduct experiments with limited resources 1939: 21 years after their preliminary communication, Rabe and Kindler published a brief publication (1939) with experimental details, Rabe and Kindler report the isolation of additional quantities of quinine from the preserved twodecades-old reaction residues from the aluminum powder reduction of quininone from: J.

Ed. 2007, 46, : Gilbert Stork characterized the impression of the achievement of the synthesis of quinine by Woodward and Doering as a widely believed myth. Stork concluded that the claim by Woodward and Doering is a myth because they had synthesized only homomeroquinene and d-quinotoxine; no synthetic quinine had been made in Cambridge. In fact, Rabe and Kindler never published the experimental details of their conversion of d-quinotoxine into quinine.

We tried to repeat it but we were not successful to obtain quinine in a yield that one can consider successful. ne obtained a mixture: quinine was one of the components but not in substantial amount that in my point of view we could call a practical yield.

Strychnine was used in several of the murders committed by serial killer Thomas eill Cream, who poisoned prostitutes on the streets of London. Famous Delta Blues legend Robert Johnson's whiskey bottle was laced with strychnine, resulting in pneumonia. A childhood friend of Vincent Van Gogh, Margot Begemann, attempted suicide by ingestion of strychnine. Belle Gunness of La Porte, Indiana, also known as Lady Bluebeard, reportedly used strychnine to murder her victims at the turn of the last century.[6] annes irtzberger, Mayor of Spitz in Lower Austria was reported to have been poisoned by elmut sberger, a local wine producer.[7] Jane Stanford, co founder of Stanford University may have died from strychnine poisoning.[8] skar Dirlewanger, the notorious WWII leader of the SS-Sturmbrigade Dirlewanger, a penal battalion composed of German criminals, was known to have murdered several Jewish girls in the Lublin Ghetto in Poland by having them stripped naked and injected with strychnine. This was done for the entertainment of himself and his officers who watched their fatal convulsions while relaxing. [ citation needed ] A woman in San Diego, California was a victim of strychnine poisoning in 1990 at the hands of her husband, who had dialed 911 but hung up the telephone without leaving his name or address. Persistence on the part of the dispatcher and the rescue workers allowed them to locate and extract the victim, but she eventually died in the hospital.[9] Fictional strychnine poisonings Mrs. Emily Inglethorp in Agatha Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles Inmates in the popular TV series The Wire were given heroin doses laced with strychnine. orman Bates' mother and her lover were killed with strychnine in Alfred itchcock's Psycho.
