Compound in which a carbonyl group is bound to two alkyl or two aryl groups, or to one alkyl and one aryl group.
- 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...
- 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...
- Chemical Safety
People use chemicals every day for a wide array of purposes, which can include work and house hold duties. Many of us fail to realize that we are actually handling potentially deadly chemicals when we simply clean the bathroom or wash the car. This brings to mind the reason why chemical safety is...
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
- Diamonds Are Forever
Diamonds are still a girl's best friend, right? We love the shiny gems. They are the most popular rocks sold today. But what exactly are they, anyway? Where do they come from? What else are they used for?
Density is the ratio b/w Mass and Volume: D=M/V
The combination of many small molecules to form large molecules.
The reaction of a substance with the solvent in which it is dissolved.
A process for the catalyzed industrial production of ammonia from N2 and H2 at high temperature and pressure.
Strong Field Ligand
Ligand that exerts a strong crystal or ligand electrical field and generally forms low spin complexes with metal ions when possible.
A proton donor.
Amount of energy that must be absorbed by reactants in their ground states to reach the transition state so that a reaction can occur. In other words, activation energy is the minimum energy required for a chemical reaction to occur.
Hydrocarbons that contain double or triple carbon-carbon bonds.
It is the force in dynes acting along the surface of the liquid 1cm in length and perpendicular to it.
of or derived from saccharin or a saccharine substance.
Metal with low ionization energy that loses electrons readily to form cations.
A state of dynamic balance in which the rates of forward and reverse reactions are equal, there is no net change in concentrations of reactants or products while a system is at equilibrium.
The number of moles of a component of a mixture divided by the total number of moles in the mixture.
Hydrocarbon derivative containing an [OH] group bound to an aromatic raing.
Specific Rate Constant
An experimentally determined (proportionality) constant, which is different for different reactions and which changes only with temperature, k in the rate-law expression: Rate = k [A] x [B]v.
The mass percent of each element in a compound.
Any of a group of dyes having a molecular structure related to that of xanthene in which the aromatic (C6H4) groups are the chromophore.
A two-armed barometer.
Boiling Point Elevation
The increase in the boiling point of a solvent caused by the dissolution of a nonvolatile solute.
A listing of metals (and hydrogen) in order of decreasing activity.
