    Aspirin is created by drying the bark of willow. Hoffman helped create Aspirin by acetylating salicylic acid to make acetylsalicylic acid. He did this while he was in a pharmaceutical group in Bayer’s drug research program. This company was founded by Friedrich Bayer. Later Bayer went on to market Aspirin in a huge way.
