  • Self-organizing molecules: Cups with attoliter volume

    They look like interlocking egg cups, but a hen's egg is 100,000 times as thick as one of the miniature cups: Scientists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have made polymers to form themselves into tiny cups on their own. They could, for example, be more

Acetone Dissolves Styrofoam Into Goo

Have you ever seen a foam cup appear to melt away in acetone? Foam cups, bowls and containers are made of a lightweight but strong material – expanded polystyrene. How then does acetone reduce this substance to a blob of goo? In this week’s video, we team up with chemistry professor Matt Harting ... more

Healthy Staff, Clean HPLC – the Way It Should Be

Leaky solvent bottles and containers affect the lab operator’s health and cause chromatography errors, noisy baselines and retention time shifting. Sealed bottles are a lot safer, but they need venting to avoid underpressure. S.C.A.T. SafetyCaps do both jobs perfectly. They clean the inlet air and b more

Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) – Maximize results and reduce errors in food analysis!

Food safety is defined as “the absence of adverse health effects due to food contamination”. Contaminants are substances that have not been intentionally added to food. These substances may be present in food as a result of the various stages of its production, packaging, transport or holding. They more

Good Titration Practice in Petrochemicals

From the ground to the engine of a vehicle, the quality control of petrochemicals is critical in every stage of the process. Water sensitivity of petrochemicals as well as their non-aqueous solubility requires special handling of the samples and specific sensors and solvents used in their analysis.

  • Water instead of mineral oil

    Optical active substances made from chiral catalysis form the basis of many drugs. Expensive precious-metal catalysts are required for the chemical production, which due to their thermal instability decompose at high temperatures and can therefore only be used once. The innovative process of DexLeChem GmbH makes it possible for the first time to use these precious-metal catalysts made from rhodium, ruthenium or iridium more than once, without modifying them. At the same time, reaction occurs in aqueous solutions instead of mineral-oil-based solvents, which increases the sustainability of the process. This is a milestone in catalysis and a real opportunity for the pharmaceutical industry. more
