Explain ascorbic acid, Science

Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C)

Although the antiscorbptic  (preventing the disease scurvy) effects of citrus hits  was known for a long time, the first  important step  towards its isolation was  the discovery of Holst and Frolich in  1907. They reported that guinea pigs, like man and monkey, were also susceptible to scurvy. The isolation of vitamin C was carried out by Zilva during 1917-1927.
