Theory that accounts for the bonding and properties of metallic solids.
- What's In Your Beverage? How to Ensure Quality Control with CO2 Analytical Support
Calibration standards, performance audits, and the FDA's never-ending safety, labeling, and inspection requirements are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dealing with the increasingly stringent quality control standards of the beverage industry. As these quality standards become...
- Harmful Chemicals Found In Food
It's getting close to New Years and many people are starting to think about how to lose those extra pounds they managed to gain over the holidays. There are many sorts of diets and fads that have developed over the years from cutting carbs to cutting protein. Everyone has their own opinion as to...
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
- Features of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope
The scanning tunneling microscope (STM) invented by Heinrich Rohrer and Gerd Binnig in the 1980s still manages to do a great job today and competes with more advanced microscope types. The scanning tunneling microscope is used for studying the surface atoms that are found on various materials. The...
- What are Compound Microscopes?
Most of the microscopes used today are compound. A compound microscope features two or more lenses. A hollow cylinder called the tube connects the two lenses. The top lens, the one people look through, is called the eyepiece. The bottom lens is known as the objective lens. Below the two lenses is...
Hydrocarbons that contain only single bonds. They are also called alkanes or paraffin hydrocarbons.
The dispersed (dissolved) phase of a solution.
A subatomic particle having a mass of 0.00054858 amu and a charge of 1-.
A term used to describe molecules and polyatomic ions that have one atom in the center and six atoms at the corners of a octahedron.
Noble Gases (Rare Gases)
Elements of the periodic Group 0, also called rare gases, formerly called inert gases, He,Ne,Ar, Kr, Xe, Rn.
A gas filled tube which discharges electriaclly when ionizing radiation passes through it.
A thermodynamic state or property that measures the degree of disorder or randomness of a system.
One faraday of electricity corresponds to the charge on 6.022 x 1023 electrons, or 96,487.301 coulombs.
The minimum mass of a particular fissionable nuclide in a given volume required to sustain a nuclear chain reaction.
Allotropic Modifications (Allotropes)
Different forms of the same element in the same physical state.
Energy that is propagated by means of electric and magnetic fields that oscillate in directions perpendicular to the direction of travel of the energy.
A nuclear reactor that produces more fissionable nuclear fuel than it consumes.
Having the same electronic configurations.
It is the force in dynes acting along the surface of the liquid 1cm in length and perpendicular to it.
In aqueous solution, the process in which a molecular compound reacts with water and forms ions.
A thin partition between two solutions through which certain molecules can pass but others cannot.
Protection of a metal (making ir a cathode) against corrosion by attaching it to a sacrifical anode of a more easily oxidized metal.
Binary compounds of boron and hydrogen.
Crystal Field Stabilization Energy
A measure of the net energy of stabilization gained by a metal ion's nonbonding d electrons as a result of complex formation.
Compound produced by dehydration of a carbonic acid. General formula is R--C--O--C--R. Chemical compound that reacts with water to form an acid and are usually oxides of nonmetallic elements.
