Linus Pauling note to self concerning taste and molecular shape. July 9, 1951.
Pauling writes a note to himself quoting the July 1951 Scientific American. The quote is from a 1846 study by Professor Horsford of Harvard published in July 1851 that investigated the similar structures of "sweet bodies" (glycocol, grape sugar, sugar of lead, etc.) and their structures' relationship to similar tastes.
