"At 12.30 today (10th May) Professor David Goodall, 104 years of age, died peacefully at Life Cycle, Basel, Switzerland from an infusion of Nembutal", Exit International founder Philip Nitschke tweeted shortly after Goodall's passing.
"He nearly became a little impatient at the end, having to go through quite a few necessary formal steps that are part of the process", Philip Nitschke, founder of right-to-die group Exit International, told AAP.
"My feeling is that an old person like myself should have full citizenship rights, including the right of assisted suicide", the 104-year-old man added.
Assisted dying is banned in Australia, where the British-born Goodall lived for the last part of his life.
"That which I would like is to get different states to follow Switzerland's guide and make them facilities available for all clients, should they satisfy certain demands, and also certain requirements perhaps not only of age, but instead of mental capacity".
His final wish was for his body to be either donated to medicine or cremated and the ashes "sprinkled locally", the right-to-die organization revealed.
Nitschke, from pro-euthanasia Group Exit International, said: It is the first time I have heard someone say its taking a long time when the drug is intravenous, but David was quite impatient for it to be over'.
He said he would have preferred to die in Australia and previously voiced his resentment over the country's laws.
"A peaceful, dignified death is the entitlement of all who want it", it said on its website on Monday.
He sang a few bars in German, and said, "At my age, and even at rather less than my age, one wants to be free to choose the death and when the death is the appropriate time".
He stressed that it was his "own choice to end my life" and said: "I look forward to that".
At 102, he was told to permanently vacate his office at Edith Cowan University in Perth over fears for his health and wellbeing.
