PenicillinThere are some chemical reaction/process that important to modern society, such as, penicillin, the haber, polythene, the pill and the mexican yam, and the screen you are reading on. Penicillin is an antibiotic that commonly used to cure infections that caused by bacteria. It is a chemical reaction and the molecular formula for penicillin is C16H18N2NaO4S+. Inside our body, Penicillin works to prevent the bacteria from growing, developing, and killing the bacteria that already mature. This antibiotic is one of the chemistry inventions that enable the modern world. Penicillin was invented in 1944 when the chemical engineer Margaret Hutchinson Rousseau used the Florey’s Health Robinson-esque design and turned his design into a full-scale production. This antibiotic was discovered by Sir Alexander Fleming in 1928.Warning for penicillin users:Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should go or consult to the doctor before taking the penicillin.Be careful with patients who have asthma, high blood pressure, heart failure, and kidney disorders.Penicillin can cause the test of sugar content in the urine to be inaccurate.If you are on a low-salt diet, be sure to tell your doctor. Some medications of the penicillin contain high salt and can provide disturbance in people with certain conditions.If an allergic reaction or an overdose occurs, make sure to look for doctor immediately.Penicillin has saved countless of lives. Penicillin and antibiotics have played a large part in human. Without penicillin, many drugs and antibiotics were not discovered. In 1940, Florey and his team performed one of the most important experiment. He injected 8 mice with a deadly dose of Streptococci bacteria. They treated the 4 out of 8 mice with penicillin and the other 4 were used as control. The next day, the 4 mice that use a penicillin recovered and the other 4 died. After this experiment, they knew that penicillin can cure a thousand and even countless of lives. Another experiment was used on human. Anne Miller was the first patient that used penicillin. After being hospitalized for a month, the doctor tried the penicillin to her. And overnight later, Anne Miller was fully recovered. As an antibiotic, Penicillin kills bacteria. Penicillin kills bacteria by preventing the bacterial enzymes from creating cell wall growth. Penicillin also activates other enzymes to destroy the cell wall.There are many types of penicillin, such as, amoxicillin, ampicillin, penicillin G and penicillin V. Each type are used for various infections. Penicillin has saved many lives but it is not always helpful for some people. Some people have penicillin allergies that can cause hives, rashes, itching and other. Antibiotics also kill good bacteria other than bacteria that can cause you illness.
