Buchners' extract

Buchners’ extract

An obsolete term for the supernatant of cultured yeast prepared by Eduard Buchner (1860–1917) and Hans Ernst August Buchner (1850–1902) which supported fermentative reactions, disproving the then-still-extant theory of vitalism and laying the foundation for modern enzymology.
