Aspirin Formula C9H8O4
Aspiring is not available in nature and it was synthesized first in 1853 by French Chemist. It can be defined as the colorless and white crystalline solid with a mild vinegar odor. It is bitter in taste and its density is calculated 1.40 g mL1 approximately. When it is heated at high temperature, it will start decomposing. It is soluble in water, chloroform, and ether. This is best known worldwide due to its antiinflammatory nature.
About Aspirin
It was accepted by medical industries in 1897 after regressive testing and it started selling commercially. It is very much suitable for cardiovascular treatment today. Also, this is taken as the raw material for the production of various medicines or chemical compound as 4hydroxycoumarin.
Aspiring is generally stable at the room temperature but it should be kept dry to avoid hydrolysis. It can cause gastritis or ulceration when used for a long time. It is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids, and strong bases. The basic understanding of a concept is necessary because it is used frequently by medical and other industries too.
