We are three years into our journey with Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ GC-MS. It has been a real privilege to watch the story unfold and to see the world embrace this technology. We saw some of the first data on the Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ GC Orbitrap™ GC-MS/MS system in 2014. We knew we had something special, […]
So many products need different compositions of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) today. How can you be sure the reaction extrusion process yields end products that meet your requirements? Watch this free webinar and learn from Dr. João M. Maia, Director of the Center of Advanced Polymer Processing at Case Western Reserve University. Professor Maia will address […]
Fitting to the temperatures, let’s have a look at the separation of “heat stable salts”. This term originates from acid gas removal processes used in the petrochemical industry in which amines remove acidic gases like H2S and CO2. Anionic contaminations present in the petrochemical product, however, can also form salts, which cannot be regenerated by […]
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is an insoluble and inactive material that is used as a coloring additive in many foods to make them look pretty and appealing to eat. It is used as a whitening and brightening agent in candies, chewing gum, white sauces and cake icing/frosting, and is used to provide texture to the foods. […]
Understanding how polymer melts deform and flow is key to knowing how to effectively process and transform them into the end products we readily consume. In this application note see how different rheological tests can provide an understanding of the viscoelastic properties of polymeric materials to optimize formulations and blends as well as to adapt […]
For many people, the smell of a new car is the rewarding scent of an eagerly awaited and well-earned purchase. For others, it’s an overpowering odor that can be nauseating. Love it or loathe it, this peculiar smell comes from the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by the polymer materials found in vehicle interior trim […]
Well, it wasn’t as big as the 1,100+ carat tennis ball-sized diamond we reported on in October, but the latest gem find announced by Sierra Leone’s Minerals Agency is a 476-carat diamond that is bigger than a golf ball. The diamond was discovered in an area spanning from the Kamara Gbense to the Tankoro chiefdoms in Sierra Leone (Kono District). […]
Natural gas is produced by biodegradation and by thermal degradation of organic matter. The isotope ratios of compounds in natural gas can hold information about the substrate and the degradation processes.
