Functional Polymers Chemical Materials

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

SERMACS 2012 – Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society

How to do more with less is a consistent theme in today’s chemical development laboratories. Researchers are challenged with how quickly and cost-effectively they can deliver high quality chemical products and the processes used to make them. This in turn has driven a trend in industry to develop and adopt new methods of working, and new techniques to analyze chemical reactions. Continue reading
