Salix alba (White Willow) is a species of willow native to Europe and
western and central Asia. The name derives from the white tone to the
undersides of the leaves.
The active extract of the bark, called salicin, after the Latin name
Salix, was isolated to its crystalline form in 1828 by Henri Leroux, a
French pharmacist, and Raffaele Piria, an Italian chemist, who then
succeeded in separating out the acid in its pure state. Salicin, like
aspirin, is a chemical derivative of salicylic acid.
