Chemical Substitutions Are The Future

| October 23, 2017

In situations where hazardous chemicals can be replaced by potentially less dangerous compounds, it’s only logical to avoid hazardous chemicals as much as possible. However, increasingly stringent regulations make chemical substitution not only practical but inevitable. Even so, many facilities struggle to implement these concepts, despite how essential they are.

Improving 3D Chemical Visualization of Subsurface Structures

Article | February 19, 2020

A Raman microscope combines a Raman spectrograph and a light microscope to gain chemical and structural information from materials down to the micron scale. Raman spectroscopy observes when the wavelength of light changes as it interacts with a molecule. The different wavelengths seen in Raman scattering can identify and study vibrational, rotational, and bending forces within chemical bonds of a molecule.

Exploring the potential impact of Brexit on the chemical industry

Article | March 12, 2020

With Brexit officially underway, the UK has entered the transition period during which arrangements affecting the chemical industry will be made. The chemical sector produces around £50 billion worth of exports annually, and 60% of this goes directly to the European Union [1]. 75% of our chemical imports also come from the EU [1], making Brexit a critical time for the sector. The future of trading is yet to be established. Now is a pivotal period during which the chemical industry, stakeholders and the government need to work together to determine this future, in order to allow for a continuation of chemistry enabled growth.
