Contributor Blog: How Did We Get Here? Challenging Semiconductor Times.

Jon Y is a Taiwan-based thought leader, writer, and producer of Asianometry, a collection of science, technology, and history studies and stories seen on his YouTube channel, through his newsletter, and on social media. A main focus of Asianometry’s writings includes semiconductors around the world, from technology to financials. The World Stopped, Technology Didn’t Here, …

The Herculean Effort of Pioneering Chromatography Columns

Dr. Mikhail S. Tsvet (also spelled Tsvett, Tswett, Tswet, Zwet, and Cvet) is credited with discovering chromatography. In his experiments, he saw the separation of colorful plant pigments occur, and more importantly, he formulated an explanation for why it was happening. He found that he could control this process, and what’s more, he realized that it didn’t have to be …

If you study pollutants in the air and water or control food or beverage quality, you’re probably familiar with a GC detector and know quite a bit about Gas Chromatography (GC). This article is for the rest of us. Those who may be a little familiar with the term but could use a really good …

Infrared spectroscopy is routinely used for identification of materials, whether known or unknown. Additionally, this technique provides other detailed insights into the environment of the material under investigation. The speed, accuracy and convenience of IR spectroscopy has made it a key technology in the contemporary analytical laboratory. Learn more as we discover the effect of …

Agricultural Biologics: Innovating for a Healthy and Sustainable Future

The agriculture industry is facing challenges from several directions. A growing global population is increasing the need for food and, therefore, greater agricultural output. Concurrently, an increasing number of consumers are demanding foods that are sustainably grown, and the impact of synthetic agrochemicals on the environment continues to raise the bar for getting new synthetics …

NexION® 5000 Multi-Quadrupole ICP-MS Wins R&D 100 Award

The NexION® 5000 multi-quadrupole ICP-MS won an R&D 100 Award, recognizing it as, “One of the 100 most technologically significant new products of the year in the analytical/test category.” The R&D 100 Awards recognize the most promising new products, processes, materials, or software developed throughout the world and introduced to the market the previous year. …

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 …
