... History and Applications
Cellulose is a common material in plant cell walls and was first noted as such in 1838. It occurs naturally in almost pure
form only in cotton fibre; in combination with lignin and any hemicellulose , it is found in all plant material. Cellulose is the most abundant ...
... proteins with a so-called his-tag , biotinylated or possibly antigens . After purification some of these tags are usually removed and the pure
protein is obtained.

Friedrich Miescher ( 1844 - 1895 ) discovered a substance he called "nuclein" in 1869 . Somewhat later, he isolated a pure
sample of the material now known as DNA from the sperm of salmon, and in 1889 his pupil, Richard Altmann , named it "nucleic acid". This ...
Ethanol has been known to humans since prehistory as the active ingredient of alcoholic beverages . Its isolation as a relatively pure
compound was probably achieved first by Islamic alchemists who developed the art of distillation , such as Geber (721-815) and Al-Razi ...
