Glucosamine: history and nature

Glucosamine was first identified and prepared in 1876 by Georg Ledderhose, through a process that involved the hydrolysis of chitin with concentrated hydrochloric acid. However it wasn’t until the 1960’s that its potential application in joint care was discovered in Italy by Professor Luigi Rovati, the founder of the pharmaceutical giant RottaPharm-Madaus.
