Aspirin: Acetylsalicylic acid:

Aspirin is the most well known member of a group of compounds called salicylates. Aspirin use as medicine like analgesic (pain-relieving), antipyretic (fever-reducing), and anti-inflammatory  but now days it is commonly used as an antiplateletagent in the treatment and prevention of heart attacks and strokes. Aspirin is a synthetic compound.
Like many drugs, aspirin is capable of undergoing a proton transfer reaction. Its most acidic proton is the H bonded to O, and in the presence of base, this H is readily removed.
Acetylsalicylic acid does not occur in nature, though some related salicylates are found in willow bark and meadowsweet blossoms.
