On this day in chemistry
April 20th

German chemist Franz Achard died on this day in 1821
Achard invented the industrial process to produce sugar from beets. Sugar used to be a luxury item only the wealthy could afford, but Achard’s mass-production process meant that many more people could afford to have a sugar in their homes. http://ow.ly/i/5ikbs
