When determining particle sizes a wide variety of techniques are used in which sieving may be the most popular. Sieving is a relatively simple technique, despite the fact that of course different instrumental approaches can be used. The main advantages of sieving are the low price of the instrumentation and the fact that different fractions of the original sample can be prepared for further use. On the other hand, sieving is very time consuming and yields results only for a very limited number of particle sizes. Results from sieving typically vary due to several factors: the method of moving the sieve, the period of operation, the number of particles on the sieve and some physical properties such as shape or stickiness of the sample. In addition, the actual size of the mesh gaps of the sieves can have large variations from the nominal size...
Like most coatings, paints, and maintenance products, water repellents are expected to comply with increasingly stringent regulations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), which are any volatile carbon compounds that engage in atmospheric photochemical reactions. The simplest example of a VOC would be a solvent or drying aid. Common examples include alcohols (such as IPA), mineral spirits, kerosene, toluene or xylene. The only compounds that have been exempt from regulations are those that have shown negligible photochemical reactivity, such as volatile methyl siloxanes, acetone, and tertiary butyl acetate. Conflicts between application specifications that require higher VOC products and tightening regulation standards pose a challenge to the market...
Microwave-assisted organic synthesis (MAOS) has become an increasingly popular discipline in modern chemical method development. At first, reaction optimization and method development on a small scale were the main areas of interest in MAOS. However, the growing acceptance and success of this innovative microwave technology revealed the necessity for large-scale synthesis of valuable compounds using microwave heating, especially in industrial laboratories...
