Apart from hormone research, Reichstein is also known for his synthesis
of vitamin C, a feat achieved about the same time (1933) in England
by Sir Walter N. Haworth and coworkers. In the latter part of his career,
Reichstein studied plant glycosides, chemicals that can be used in the
development of therapeutic drugs. He was awarded the Copley Medal of
the British Royal Society in 1968.
