Example text

The father of Aspirin and hero of Heroin chose to live away from all publicity. He lived in Switzerland far from the public eye. Felix Hoffmann was never married and had no children. He died in Switzerland on 8th February, 1946. The workers at Bayer's were used as guinea-pigs those days and they felt heroic after taking this drug, Diacetylmorphine or heroin. Hence it was named as heroin. Curiously, then aspirin required a doctor's prescription but not heroin! And Aspirin was declared not good for heart!

Instead he pawned everything in his household including his watch and crockery. He did make rubber crockery, but where was the food? And then there are patent robbers. He had to prosecute 32 infringement cases right up to the US Supreme Court. He made headlines, but not money. His French patent was cancelled on technical grounds; he was bundled off for a 16-day and night free stay at his well-known 'hotel' as he called it, the prison. He had $200,000 debt, when he died, in 1860. However, royalties from his inventions made his family comfortable.

He studied the structure and phenomena in solids at the microscopic level using sophisticated tools of spectroscopy in his own lab at the university. Totally new types of solids with entirely new properties useful for the industries could be created because of his researches. In 1958, he joined the University of California at Berkeley as a research chemist. He started his career back in India as a lecturer at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore in 1959. In 1960, he married Indumati. They have two children, Suchitra and Sanjay.
