  • New record set for carbon-carbon single bond length

    A stable organic compound has been synthesized with a record length for the bond between its carbon atoms, exceeding the assumed limit. Hokkaido University researchers have synthesized an organic compound with a longer bond between carbon atoms than ever before - exceeding the assumed limit for carb more

  • Revealing high performance CNT catalyst relating to its electroconductivity

    Recent research showed biofuels were obtained from Jatropha Oil using carbon nanotube (CNT) catalyst, which showed efficient cracking activity. The performance was activated by the high stability, metal sites, acid sites, electroconductivity, and coking tolerance of CNT. Two cracking circulations we more

  • Conjugated tetraenes from butadiene and alkynes

    Conjugated tetraenes are important key substructures in electronic materials, natural products and pharmaceutical molecules. However, they are difficult to synthesize. They are conventionally prepared by repetitions of the stoichiometric reactions using phosphorus reagents and subsequent reduction a more

Functional Groups in Organic Compounds

A functional group in chemistry is the part of the molecule that gives it its particular reactivity; simple molecules that contain the same functional group in their structure can be expected to react in similar ways. More complicated chemical molecules may contain more than one functional group wit more

Cosmetic Chemistry

Lipstick is one of the most commonly used cosmetic products – and a range of chemicals are required for its production. The choice of these ingredients is carefully considered to provide the desired colour, glossiness, and indelibility. A single stick of lipstick will contain several hundred differe more

The Chemistry of Petrol & The Tetraethyl Lead Story

18th May marks the date of birth of Thomas Midgley, who made significant contributions to something many of us make use of on a regular basis: petrol. Midgley was the research assistant to Charles Kettering, and the duo were responsible for the addition of the compound tetraethyl lead to petrol, an more

Market studies Hydrocarbons

  • Algeria Petrochemicals Report Q3 2012

    We maintain our view that the Algerian economy will experience moderate rates of real GDP expansion, with growth rates of 3.0% and 1.9% forecast for 2012 and 2013 respectively. This reflects the country’s poor external outlook and a contraction in public consumption. We expect a deterioration in the more

  • Kuwait Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q1 2011

    Kuwait continues to be perceived as one of the moderately attractive pharmaceutical markets. While it boasts a highly-regarded regulatory regime and substantial per-capita spending on pharmaceuticals, its attractiveness is hampered by the small overall market size, dependent on its population of und more
