That an oil could be extracted from anise and fennel had been known since the Renaissance by the German alchemist Hieronymus Brunschwig (ca. 1450 – ca. 1512), the German botanist Adam Lonicer (1528–1586), and the German physician Valerius Cordus (1515–1544), among others. [40] Anethole was first investigated chemically by the Swiss chemist Nicolas-Théodore de Saussure in 1820. [41] In 1832 the French chemist Jean Baptiste Dumas determined that the crystallizable components of anise oil and fennel oil were identical, and he determined anethole's empirical formula. [42] In 1845, the French chemist Charles Gerhardt coined the term anethol — from the Latin anethum (anise) + oleum (oil) — for the fundamental compound from which a family of related compounds was derived. [43] Although the German chemist Emil Erlenmeyer proposed the correct molecular structure for anethole in 1866, [44] it wasn't until 1872 that the structure was accepted as correct. [45]
