Win the Race with These Rapid Chemical Kinetics Techniques

Chemical kinetics, the study of the rates and mechanisms of reactions, is an indispensable tool in both chemical discipline development and scientific research. With it, researchers can tell whether a reaction can occur, how fast it will happen, and how to control the speed. With applications in both basic and applied sciences, chemical kinetics lets …

How to Accelerate Semiconductor Manufacturing

Semiconductors have helped move innovation forward, from advancing the first space travel to the first autonomous vehicle-they are a powerful technology. They are widely used in many products we use and depend on every day, from smartphones and computers to transportation and industrial manufacturing. Advances in semiconductors have touched every aspect of our lives and …

Your Tour Guide to Fertilizer and Agrochemical Analytical Technologies

The fertilizer and agrochemical industries use comprehensive analytical programs on compounds that span from raw materials to final product during research and development (R&D) and production workflows. Let’s take a quick tour of the types of technologies needed for fertilizer mining, agrochemicals R&D, blend manufacturing, and QA/QC-and what is needed along the way. Spectroscopy Spectroscopy, …

Agrochemicals

Since the earliest known agricultural activity roughly 14,000 years ago, humans have been challenged with producing enough food to survive. That meant maximizing agricultural yields and preventing losses due to disease, pests, and other adversities. Up until the 20th century, people used naturally occurring substances to fertilize their crops – e.g., manure – and combat …

Most of the world’s innovations rely on the chemicals industry. From manufacturing medicine and decontaminating drinking water to electronics engineering and personal care product development, the global chemicals industry supports the production of an enormous range of products that are used worldwide. Some chemicals become components of physical products and others are essential for industrial …

The three main objectives for lubricants testing are accuracy of test results, rapid turn-around time, and cost control. Robert Broaddus, Lab Manager at the nation’s first Caterpillar dealer –  Yancey™ Bros – knows this all too well. Up until now, automatic particle counting (APC) technology has not kept pace especially in terms of automation and …
