The Adamkiewicz reaction is part of a biochemical test used to detect the presence of the amino acid tryptophan in proteins. When concentrated sulfuric acid is combined with a solution of protein and glyoxylic acid, a red/purple colour is was named after its discoverer, Albert Wojciech Adamkiewicz.   Mottram VH.
