  Friedrich Woehler
Friedrich Wöhler (July 31, 1800, in Eschersheim[?] near Frankfurt am Main - September 23, 1882, in Göttingen) was a German chemist.
In 1823 Wöhler finished his study of medicine in Heidelberg at the laboratory of Leopold Gmelin[?], who arranged for him to work under Jöns Jakob Berzelius in Stockholm.

 History of drug metabolism supplement
Friedrich Woehler was born in 1800 near Frankfort-on the-Main.
Woehler showed such talent in the laboratory that even after he obtained his doctorate in Medicine, Surgery, and Midwifery he was encouraged by the chemist Leopold Gmelin to continue his chemical investigations.
Woehler continued his chemical studies and in 1828 reported the finding that the combination of potassium cyanate with ammonium sulfate led to the production of a compound that was identical in composition to that of the naturally occurring compound urea.

FRIEDRICH WOEHLER was born on July 31, 1800 in Frankfurt-am-Main, the son of a veterinary surgeon.
Woehler considered this as a remarkable example of the preparation of a substance of animal origin from inorganic materials.
Woehler's most distinguished student was Hermann Kolbe and the latter and Liebig remained his life-long friends (1822).

 History of drug metabolism:Woehler
Woehler was born in the early nineteenth century near Frankfort-on -the-Main the son of Auguste Woehler, a man educated in Science and Philosophy.
Woehler was interested in minerals in his youth and developed a keen interest in chemistry.
In 1828, Woehler was able to synthesize urea, one of the compounds he had examined in his studies on urinary waste products and sent a note to Berzelius "I must tell you that I can prepare urea without requiring a kidney of an animal, either man or dog".

Justus von Liebig (1803—1873) and Friedrich Wöhler (1800—1882) were friends who helped make organic chemistry a field of systematic study within the framework of known chemical laws.
Years after their work, the insights gained from organic chemistry about how atoms bond were applied to the whole of chemistry.

Friedrich Wöhler was born in 1800 at Escherheim, near Frankfurt-am-Main.
At school he excelled in Latin, and was sound in Mathematics, but was taught no Science: By the age of eighteen he was doing advanced practical chemistry in the household kitchen, and throughout his life he loved practical work.

 Wöhler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Friedrich Wöhler is best known for his synthesis in 1828 of urea from ammonium cyanate.
This was generally interpreted by his successors as a major blow to the philosophy of vitalism, which maintained that there was an impassable gulf separating the inorganic compounds found in rock and minerals from the organic compounds found in living organisms.
Though these two famous chemists eventually had a falling out, Wöhler managed to remain friends with both of them to the end, and the published volumes of their collected letters give us a valuable insight into their respective personalities.

Friedrich Wöhler (1800–1882), on the Bicentennial of His Birth
The life and contributions to various areas of chemistry of German chemist Friedrich Wöhler (1800–1882) are briefly sketched.
His serendipitous synthesis of urea from ammonium cyanate in 1828, which is dealt with in some detail, challenged the vitalistic theory that organic compounds can be produced only by living organisms and led to today’s synthetic chemical industry and its host of products that we take for granted.

The vast new field of organic chemistry was opened in 1828 with Friedrich Wöhler's synthesis of urea, a compound present in certain body fluids of mammals, from inorganic materials in his laboratory.
This disproved the assumption that such compounds could be formed only through the operation of a “life force” present in animals and plants.

In 1828 the chemist Friedrich Woehler made a discovery that shocked him and overturned the reigning concept of how life relates to the rest of the world: he made the substance “urea”; out of inorganic chemicals in a test tube.
Like most people of his time, Woehler believed that living things had a special mysterious “life force” that enabled them to make “living chemicals” like urea.
When Woehler made urea in a test tube, the life force theory was proven false and people began to realize that the structures and processes making up living things can be studied and manipulated in the same way that other material things can.

It seems fitting that these walls, which have vibrated in sympathy with that brilliant eulogy of Liebig, which Professor Hofmann pronounced some nine years ago, should hear something of him whose life-long association with Liebig has exercised an undying influence on the development of scientific thought.
His mother was connected by marriage with the minister of Eschersheim, a village near Frankfort, and it was in the minister's house that Friedrich Wöhler first saw the light, on 31st July 1800.
Even in early youth his passion for experimenting and collecting manifested itself, to the neglect not unfrequently of the lessons of the gymnasium; indeed, it would appear that during his school career Wöhler was not characterised by either special diligence or knowledge.

 Cell-free fermentation (1/8)
We must try to understand his work not only, as is usually done, as originating beam but also as gathering focus: the one clarifies the other.
At the end of this article we will return to Friedrich Wöhler, for at that point an enquiry into divergencies and coalescences in the historical development of organic chemistry and of biochemistry will be extremely instructive.
Reil’s long paper, perhaps bolstered by the monumental experimental observations of the likes of Lavoisier, Reaumur and Spallanzani, made short shrift of speculation and would, from our perspective of 200 years later, have been expected to sound the death-knell of vitalist thought.
