  • XRF plastics and polymers analysis | Spectroscopy Solutions

    Plastics are ubiquitous in modern life with polyethylene and polypropylene being two of the most commonly used. These plastics can be found in anything from plastic carrier bags to children’s toys, to thermoplastics and consumer products. Polyethylene and polypropylene are polymers produced from α-olefins which are polymerized using the high-pressure Ziegler–Natta process. The ...

  • A High-Performance Base-Metal Approach for the Oxidative Esterification of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural

    Exploring high-performance base-metal approaches for the sustainable production of chemicals from biomass is presently attracting immense interest and is truly important to promote their industrialized application. Herein, CoOx-N/C and α-MnO2 were combined as a base-metal catalyst that can achieve high yields of furan-2,5-dimethylcarboxylate (FDMC, 95.6 %) for ...

  • Plutonium decontamination using CBI DeconGel 1101 in highly contaminated and unique areas at LLNL

    A highly contaminated glove-box at LLNL containing plutonium was decontaminated using a strippable decontamination gel. 6 x 12 inch quadrants were mapped out on each of the surfaces. The gel was applied to various surfaces inside the glove-box and was allowed to cure. The radioactivity in each quadrant was measured using a LLNL Blue Alpha meter with a 1.5 inch standoff distance. The results ...

  • Diurnal variation of the mixing-layer height and polonium concentration in the air

    The Mixing Height (MH) is one of the most important parameters that characterise the range of the atmospheric turbulence. This parameter shows characteristic diurnal variation but cannot be measured immediately. Therefore, it is evaluated indirectly by measuring other quantities. The measurement of radon concentration in the atmospheric air is one of the methods using natural occurring ...
