  • Understanding rare earth emulsions

    Despite their name, rare earth elements actually aren't that rare. Abundant in mines around the world, rare earths are used in many high-tech products, including visual displays, batteries, super conductors, and computer hard drives. But while they aren't necessarily tricky to find, the elements oft more

  • Unexpected degree of order found in interior grain boundaries of polycrystalline materials

    Scientists in the United States and China have announced a discovery that they believe could enable the engineering of alloyed materials that are stronger and more ductile and possess superior electrical, magnetic and physical properties. The researchers said they had found a surprising degree of or more

  • Nanoscale islands dot light-driven catalyst

    Individual nanoscale nuggets of gold, copper, aluminum, silver and other metals that capture light's energy and put it to work are being employed by Rice University scientists who have discovered a way to build multifunctional nanoscale structures. The structures have an aluminum core and are dotted more

White papers Metals

  • Helpers of all sizes for analysts

    Geologists analyze soil samples, the oil industry studies crude oil, and the steel industry wants to know the composition of slag. These are completely different fields, but all begin the analysis process with a high-temperature fusion treatment of t more

Group 2 Elements

The second of a series of infographics on the groups of the periodic table, here some general properties of the group 2 elements are examined. As stated previously, these are primarily aimed at secondary school students, hence the relative simplicity and generality of the information presented. more

Group 1 Elements

I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some informatio more

The Metal Reactivity Series

The metal reactivity series is a commonly taught concept in chemistry, placing the metals, as its name suggests, in order of reactivity from most reactive to least reactive. It’s also a useful tool in predicting the products of simple displacement reactions involving two different metals, as well as more

Thermal Analysis of Thermosets

Thermosets are used for components that must be rigid, insoluble and of high mechanical strength and temperature stability. Production and processing are cheaper compared with metals. The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such materials. Th
