    University of Waterloo News Bureau Industrial research chair at UW to study polymer chemistry WATERLOO, Ont. -- An industrial research chair to study polymer chemistry and catalysis has been established at the University of Waterloo in partnership with Novacor Chemicals Ltd. and the Natural
  • Laboratory and Field Evaluations of a New Silica Dispersant
    Based on molecular modeling studies, new polymers were designed to maximize the interaction energies between polymer molecule and the crystalline surfaces of silica and magnesium silicate. One of these newlydesigned polymers has been further developed for laboratory and field evaluations
  • PAT in Perspective: Drugs Are Not Potato Chips
    : chemical, polymer, paper, textile and, yes, even pharmaceutical. Normally, NIR is applied to mixtures of materials (including natural products), usually in the diffuse reflection mode. The signal generated contains both chemical and physical information; the physical usually dominates the spectrum

    ) was. One problem, of course, is that heparin is derived from pigs, and natural products are never exactly the same. Heparin is mostly a polymer of disaccharides (two-ring sugars) with each unit containing uronic acid and glucosamide. When the various stereoisomers, sugars and sulfation patterns

  • Corrosion-Resistant FEVE-Based Coatings Extend the Life of Offshore Oilfield Structures
    the polymers into high-performance resins suitable for coating formulations. To make fluorourethane coatings that offer outstanding durability, they are synthesized with reactive hydroxyl groups and can be cross-linked with standard aliphatic isocyanates. UV light generates free radicals that affect weaker
