Solution in which no more solute will dissolve.
- 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?
An instrument that measures the charge-to-mass ratio of charged particles.
Chemical Hygiene Officer (CHO)
A person or employee who is qualified by training or experience to provide technical guidance in the development and implementations of the provisions of a Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP)
A reaction in which two atoms or groups of atoms are added to a molecule, one on each side of a double or triple bond. Types of addition reaction include electrophilic, nucleophilic (polar) and free radical addition (non-polar).
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 noncrystalline solid with no well-defined ordered structure.
Colloidal suspension of a gas in a liquid.
Sand, rock, and other impurities surrounding the mineral of interest in an ore.
High energy electromagnetic radiation. A highly penetrating type of nuclear radiation similar to x-ray radiation, except that it comes from within the nucleus of an atom and has a higher energy. Energywise, very similar to cosmic ray except that cosmic rays originate from outer space.
A solid compound that contains a definite percentage of bound water.
A group of atoms derived from an alkane by the removal of one hydrogen atom.
A gas filled tube which discharges electriaclly when ionizing radiation passes through it.
A technique for separation of ions by rate and direction of migration in an electric field.
A relatively large energy separation between an insulator's highest filled electron energy band and the next higher energy vacant band. Beginning in the fourth energy level, a set of seven degenerate orbitals per energy level, higher in energy than s, p, and d orbitals of the same energy level.
A compound consisting of three elements, may be ionic or covalent.
A catalyst that exists in a different phase (solid, liquid or gas) from the reactants, a contact catalyst.
The number of moles of a component of a mixture divided by the total number of moles in the mixture.
The mass of one formula unit of a substance in atomic mass units.
The undesirable overgrowth of vegetation caused by high concentrates of plant nutrients in bodies of water.
A protein that acts as a catalyst in biological systems.
The number (6.022x10^23) of atoms, molecules or particles found in exactly 1 mole of substance.
