Fortuitous preparation and experiences led to the opportunity to use radioactive carbon dioxides to discern the path of carbon in photosynthesis. The search for the CO2 acceptor led to recognition of the growth stimulatory effect of methanol and its derivatives. With the techniques developed, radiochromatographic exploration led to discovery of major membrane lipids containing phosphorus, sulfur, and arsenic.
