I am not a medical historian, but I would bet that if you asked one, they would identify the synthesis of Aspirin in 1897 as one of most significant moments in modern medicine. With its pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory and anti-platelet (blood thinning) properties packaged within a single tablet, Aspirin provided a safe, effective and easy treatment for a wide range of illnesses. Even today, it is listed on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines and is taken daily by millions of people for the prevention of heart attacks and strokes. Its synthesis (and the pharmaceutical revolution it helped to user in) has no doubt helped to increase our lifespan and bring about a higher quality of life.
