Scientists at the University of Warwick have developed a more powerful method of analyzing chemical mixtures, which has been able to assign a record-breaking number of 244,779 molecular compositions within a single sample of petroleum
A new paper charts a road map for displacing fossil fuels in the production of plastics, clothing, and more
In the case of one type of pollution—tiny particles that can damage people’s lungs—particle-forming emissions from chemical products are about twice as high as those from the transportation sector
Turning sewage sludge into biocrude oil
School secures a $70,000 grant from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund
Scientists recently disclosed a new method to convert lignin, a biomass waste product, into simple chemicals. The innovation is an important step toward replacing petroleum-based fuels and chemicals with biorenewable materials, says Shannon Stahl, an expert in "green chemistry" at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Four universities in North Dakota and South Dakota have been awarded a $6 million grant to establish the Dakota Bioprocessing Consortium, also known as DakotaBioCon, and conduct collaborative research.
The varied uses and products of petrochemicals in our daily lives are only rivaled by the number of quality tests performed on them. Some of the most common analyses are titrations. The comprehensive Good Titration Practice (GTP®) in Petrochemicals webinar from METTLER TOLEDO offers insights into method programming, hardware, and operation of potentiometric and Karl Fischer titrators specifically for petrochemical products.
