Most chemists and chemical engineers know the use of ATR-FTIR to monitor multi-step complex chemical reactions. The technology has even become a staple for them in academic and industry labs over the past 20 years. Fewer people are familiar with the use in chemical material science, although they help provide a better understanding of the relationship between product structure and properties. Continue reading
Highly reactive chemistries are used in the syntheses of drug molecules, special polymer products, herbicides and other agriculture products, high energy materials, and even special materials like nano-particles and chemo-sensors.
Examples of highly reactive chemistries include:
- Azide chemistry
- Diazo chemistry
- Grignard chemistry
- Lithium chemistry
- Phosgene chemistry
