A ternary compound containing H, O, and another element, often a nonmetal.
- 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?
- 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...
- 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...
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
A subatomic particle having a mass of 1.0073 amu and a charge of +1, found in thew nuclei of atoms.
Weighted average of the masses of the constituent isotopes of an element, The relative masses of atoms of different elements.
Bonding within metals due to the electrical attraction of positively charges metal ions for mobile electrons that belong to the crystal as a whole.
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
It is impossible to determine accurately both the momentum and position of an electron simultaneously.
A thermometer used for accurate measurement of very small changes in temperature.
The dispersed (dissolved) phase of a solution.
Weak Field Ligand
A Ligand that exerts a weak crystal or ligand field and ge- nerally forms high spin complexes with metals.
Group VIIA elements: F, Cl, Br, I
The ability of one liquid to mix with (dissolve in) another liquid.
The smallest particle of an element.
The capacity to do work or transfer heat.
Photochemically produced oxidizing agents capable of causing damage to plants and animals.

A plant extract that has a distinctive odour or flavour.
Conjugated Double Bonds
Double bonds that are separated from each other by one single bond -C=C-C=C-.
A listing of metals (and hydrogen) in order of decreasing activity.
A hypothetical gas that obeys exactly all postulates of the kinetic-molecular theory.
The separation of a liquid mixture into its components on the basis of differences in boiling points. The process in which components of a mixture are separated by boiling away the more volitile liquid.
