Did you ever wonder how barbiturates were developed? No? nor did I. But I’m sure that you’d like to know wouldn’t you?
Barbiturates were in fact developed using a mixture of apples and human urine by Adolf Von Baeyer back in the 1860s. They were named in part after a German waitress who provided the urine for their experimental production! I assume that her surname wasn’t Iturate. If she married a Mr Smith and had grandchildren I wonder if she became Granny Smith?
