J. Scherrer, 1850, Germany / Switzerland
Posted by: D. Frischer Date: March 20, 2001 at 13:40:37
  of 77

We are at the Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Michigan. We have a reference to a J. Scherrer who discovered the very important chemical named inositol around 1850, probably in Germany, possibly in Switzerland. Our reference is from Liebigs Annalen, Vol. 73, p. 322, 1850. We are trying to find out what his first name was, that is, what the J.stands for.

Any help would be appreciated very much.
