The reversible oxygenation of hemoglobin was first reported here by Felix Hoppe-Seyler, who also coined the name 'hemoglobin'. With the aid of absorption spectra of the blood dye, Hoppe-Seyler was able to show that hemoglobin in the form of oxihemoglobin reversibly binds oxygen in the blood. He recognized in 1866 that the further oxidation takes place in the tissues and not in the blood. Furthermore, he concluded that the toxicity of carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulphide is caused by the displacement of oxygen from oxhemoglobin, since this has a much higher affinity for these substances than for oxygen. This was a finding of enormous toxicological significance. It is also worth mentioning that the names hemoglobin and oxihemoglobin are derived from it. Also included in this volume is Hoppe-Seyler's important paper "Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Blutes des Menschen und der Wirbeltiere (Heft 3, pp. 366-385). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
