    by-product of wine making.
  34. (-)-(2S,3S)-Tartaric Acid : pdb
    a rare form of this acid with no optical rotation was called Racemic Acid (from racemus=bunch of grapes, L). Experiment showed that this was a 50-50 mixture of the (+) and (-) forms of tartaric acid (which were separated by hand-picking crystals of the sodium ammonium salt of racemic acid) and this has led all such 50-50 mixtures of the two enantiomers being labelled racemic
  35. (2R,3S)-Tartaric Acid (meso): pdb
  36. Taxol : pdb; jpg
    extracted from bark of Pacific yew tree, of which the supply is limited;
    shows promise in treating certain kinds of cancers.

    from oil of thyme.
  38. Tyrian purple : pdb
    6,6'-dibromoindigo. Prepared from sea snails found near the city of Tyre in very low yield (10,000 snails gave 1 g of dye) and so very expensive and available only to royalty.
