Translated title of the contributionTracing the red dye : A historical detection reaction for lactose re-discovered
Chemistry history (s), medicine and basic research - these three approaches can be combined using a common context with a red dye in the center when dealing with students’ different interests and motivation levels!
The appropriate evidence, discovery, use and elucidation of the underlying mechanisms of pregnancy diabetes and lactose intolerance provide exciting questions for chemistry lessons in the field of carbohydrates, when keeping in mind European research history (s) and today’s open research questions.
