Ever since the 1930s, debate has raged inside chemistry circles concerning the fundamental structure of the organic chemical compound benzene.
Anton Paar's Multiwave 5000 is a versatile microwave platform system for efficient, convenient and safe microwave-assisted analytical and synthetic chemistry.
The 2060 Process Analyzer, from Metrohm Process Analytics, enables customised online monitoring of industrial processes with multiple parameters and streams.
CSIRO's FloWorks Centre for Industrial Flow Chemistry seeks to provide cutting-edge research into flow chemistry capability, making it more accessible to the chemical manufacturing industry.
Scientists have developed a portable device that can identify a wide range of airborne gases and chemicals instantly. It could thus assist in the detection of gas leaks and industrial air pollution.
Syrris has upgraded the touchscreen firmware for its Atlas HD jacketed reactor systems to offer many of the automation features previously only available using the system's PC-based control software.
The model achieves 90% accuracy in predicting the correct product of unseen chemical reactions, whereas the accuracy of trained human chemists is around 80%.
Researchers have succeeded in viewing previously inaccessible details of certain chemical processes, showing there are significant discrete stages to these processes.
Analysing previously published chemical reaction data can predict how hypothetical reactions may proceed, narrowing the range of conditions chemists need to explore.
PAC has introduced OptiPMD, the latest version of ISL's robust and portable micro-distillation analyser. The product performs a physical atmospheric distillation in 10 min using only 10 mL of sample, allowing users to make fast decisions for process optimisation.
An international research team has created a coating only one molecule thick that modifies the surface of sensor electrodes.
The XPERT TOC/TNb analyser, from Trace Elemental Instruments, is a robust, all-in-one elemental combustion analyser that measures total organic carbon and total bound nitrogen concentrations simultaneously from a single injection.
Chemists have discovered a novel mechanism in catalysis, allowing the synthesis of certain alcohols in a cheaper and more environmentally friendly way than ever before.
Researchers have tailored the structure of graphene-oxide layers to mimic the hourglass shape of biological channels, creating ultrathin membranes to rapidly separate chemical mixtures.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the periodic table, and the principles that drove Dmitri Mendeleev to construct his table are still influencing today's research advances.
