He reportedly called the modified sugar "serendipitose". After its discovery, Phadnis and Hough worked with the Tate and Lyle scientists with a new goal in mind. They wanted to find a low calorie sweetener from chlorinated sucrose that didn't kill insects and could be eaten by humans. Their final version of the chemical was named sucralose. In some countries, a ladybird or ladybug is a symbol of good luck.
The discovery of saccharin is credited to Constantin Fahlberg — In , Fahlberg was working with coal tar and its derivatives in Ira Remsen's chemistry laboratory at John Hopkins University. One day he was working late and forgot to wash his hands before eating supper or, according to some reports, didn't wash them thoroughly.
He was amazed when he found that his bread tasted extremely sweet. Fahlberg realized that a chemical which he had been using in the lab had contaminated and sweetened the bread. He returned to the lab to find the source of the sweetness. His tests involved tasting different chemicals, which was a very risky pursuit.
Fahlberg discovered that a chemical referred to as benzoic sulfimide was responsible for the sweet taste. This chemical eventually became known as saccharin.
Fahlberg had made this chemical before but had never tasted it. Saccharin became a very popular sweetener. Success is three parts hard work and one part serendipity; this serendipity is a direct result of the other three parts of hard work. In , a chemist named James Schlatter was working for the G.
D Searle Company. He was trying to create new drugs to treat stomach ulcers. As part of this study, he needed to make a chemical consisting of four amino acids. He first joined two amino acids together aspartic acid and phenylalanine , forming aspartyl-phenylalaninemethyl ester. Today this chemical is known as aspartame. Once Schlatter had made this intermediate chemical, he accidentally got some of it on his hand.
When he licked one of his fingers before picking up a piece of paper he was surprised to notice a sweet taste on his skin. Eventually he realized the cause of the taste and aspartame's future as a sweetener was secured. A combined microwave and fan-assisted oven; the microwave was developed due to serendipity.
Arpingstone, via Wikimedia Commons, public domain image. In , the physicist and inventor Percy LeBaron Spencer — was working for the Raytheon corporation.
He was conducting research using magnetrons, which were needed in the radar equipment used in World War Two. A magnetron is a device that contains moving electrons under the influence of a magnetic field. The moving electrons cause microwaves to be produced. Percy Spencer was involved in testing the output of magnetrons. One very significant day he had a chocolate candy bar in his pocket while working with a magnetron in his lab.
Although most versions of the story say that the candy was made of chocolate, Spencer's grandson says that it was actually a peanut cluster bar.
Spencer discovered that the candy bar melted while he worked. He wondered if emissions from the magnetron were responsible for this change, so he placed some uncooked popcorn kernels next to the magnetron and watched as they popped. His next experiment involved placing an uncooked egg near the magnetron. The egg heated up, cooked, and exploded. Spencer then created the first microwave oven by sending the microwave energy from a magnetron into a metal box that contained food.
The microwaves were reflected by the metal walls of the box, entered the food and were converted to heat, cooking the food much faster than a conventional oven. Further refinements created the microwave ovens that so many of us use today. There are many more examples of serendipity in science. Some researchers estimate that up to fifty percent of scientific discoveries are serendipitous. My goal as a photographer was to find a company that has a keen eye for detail and offers only the highest quality products.

Matted folios display prints mounted in beautiful conservation, acid-free, lignin-free, white 4-ply mat. I am tempted to order the Serendipity Chocolatress, but honestly, how many high end beauty products should an 8 year old be addicted to? I couldn't find it on the website either! But I know what you mean — I kind of feel I have created a monster. My daughter is almost walking and seems to spend her entire day plotting about how to get into my perfume cabinet.
I take her out and hand her the scent strips and she takes a deep, critical sniff of each one and then, usually, hides them so she can attempt to eat them later. The SAs look on in what appears to be amazed disapproval — but I'm just grooming the next generation of perfume consumer, so you think they'd be happy…. Oh, this was so much fun!
I have to go read your chocolate selection. I would love to taste the frozen hot chocolate, too. I never saw any other product from this series — and I've looked. Maybe they were just testing the market??
Ours is nearly gone. I haven't been to Serendipity in years, but I remember fondly those yummy Frozen Hot Chocolates, which were about 15 gallons if I remember correctly. I see nobody mentioned Tuescher chocolate yesterday. Truly the most divine, if pricey chocky I've ever had. M, Serendipity 3 is great fun, but you have to wait for the pleasure: the line at lunch on a weekend can be an hour or more.
Great place for kids though! Off topic, sort of: do you remember Wylies in Silver Spring? Best ice cream memories of my childhood. Looks like Teuscher has a boutique in NYC, will check them out! The champagne truffles look awesome. He freestyles new lyrics and speaks lucidly as if channeling from another time and space. On stage, he is on fire, a presence, a spirit, a voice of the people, a muse, a witness, a visionary, a comedian, a star.
Yes, he jams the acoustic guitar, harmonica, keys and percussion with flawless skill and funky style. Yes, he has incredible music sensibility and can orchestrate his band with a sort of ESP. Yes, the sings angelic and moves elemental, like liquid velvet. Yes, he has all those talents and charms, but the things that everyone really comes for are the words Anthony Beres is know by many as Singing Bear, a name given to him by his mother who is part Apache.
In he moved to SF from Ohio where he had a band called "Forealious" He has sold over CDs by himself and continues to elude Labels and Managers with his covert style. This new album introduces Bear to the world as an Independent World-Class Artist and is certain to become a classic.
