A substance whose aqueous solutions do not conduct electricity.
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
- 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...
- 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?
- 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...
- 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...
A thermodynamic state or property that measures the degree of disorder or randomness of a system.
Spectrum that contains all wave-lengths in a specified region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Any of a number of lines corresponding to definite wavelengths of an atomic emission or absorption spectrum, represents the energy difference between two energy levels.
The release of heat by a system as a process occurs.
Energy that matter processes by virtue of its motion.
The point at which chemically equivalent amounts of reactants have reacted.

Faraday's Law of Electrolysis
One equivalent weight of a substance is produced at each electrode during the passage of 96,487 coulombs of charge through an electrolytic cell.

Solubility Product Principle
The solubility product constant expression for a slightly soluble compound is the product of the concentrations of the constituent ions, each raised to the power that corresponds to the number of ions in one formula unit.
Hydrolysis of esters in the presence of strong soluable bases.
Binary compounds of boron and hydrogen.
Redox reactions in which the oxidizing agent and the reducing agent are the same species.
Common Ion Effect
Suppression of ionization of a weak electrolyte by the presence in the same solution of a strong electrolyte containing one of the same ions as the weak electrolyte.
A mixture which has uniform composition and properties throughout.
Chemical bond formed by the sharing of one or more electron pairs between two atoms.
Law of Conservation of Matter
There is no detectable change in the quantity of matter during an ordinary chemical reaction.
A reaction in which an atom or a group of atoms is replaced by another atom or group of atoms.
Colloidal suspension of a gas in a liquid.
A salt or ester of salicylic acid.
