  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...

  • Analysis of Organic plating Bath Additives and Chemicals by Isocratic HPLC

    In today’s world, over 75% of all metal surfaces on manufactured metal “items” have some sort of plated finish on them. From highchromium steel car bumpers to zinc diecast toys to Silver-contact electronic components. While the primary composition of these plating baths are inorganic (the metals and salts that are used to make up the desired metal finish), almost all types of plating baths; from ...

  • Chemical and toxicological evaluation of transformation products during advanced oxidation processes

    The entry of pharmaceuticals into the water cycle from sewage treatment plants is of growing concern because environmental effects are evident at trace levels. Ozonation, UV- and UV/H2O2-treatment were tested as an additional step in waste water treatment because they have been proven to be effective in eliminating aqueous organic contaminants. The pharmaceuticals carbamazepine, ...

  • Hydrogen production through chemical looping using NiO/NiAl2O4 as oxygen carrier

    A new autothermal route to produce hydrogen from natural gas via chemical looping technology was investigated. Nowadays, 90% of the worldwide produced hydrogen comes from fossil fuels, the most common process being Steam Methane Reforming (SMR), which produces several kg of CO2 equivalent per kg of hydrogen. In classic SMR technology, most of the greenhouse gases are vented to the atmosphere. ...

  • Chemicals used for pH Adjustment

    The Chemistry of Limestone Treatment: Limestone is an alkaline agent with the ability to neutralize, or partially neutralize strong acids. The neutralization process occurs when strong acids, in intimate contact with limestone chips, react with Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3, the primary constituent of limestone) to form water, carbon dioxide and calcium salts. The following depicts the neutralization ...
