Death of a legend

Like Comment

This is just a quick note to say that Albert Hofmann, the chemist who first discovered LSD, has died at the grand old age of 102. He was something of a legend among modern-day medicinal chemists, not least because he decided to test out his discovery on himself.

You can find a report on his life on the Great Beyond blog.
