Toluene aromatic hydrocarbon Infographic


Toluene Infographic Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is widely used as an industrial feedstock and as a solvent Toluene Infographic Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is widely used as an industrial feedstock and as a solvent. Toluene occurs naturally at low levels in pine oil and is usually produced in the processes of gasoline via a catalytic reformer, in an ethylene cracker or making coke from coal. Final separation, either via distillation or solvent extraction, takes place in one of the many available processes for extraction of benzene, toluene and xylene isomers

Potassium permanganate: The Most Useful Survival Chemical


Potassium Permanganate

Potassium Permanganate

When people think about survival tools, chemicals are usually not one of the first things that come to mind. Potassium permanganate should though.

Also known as KMnO4, Condy’s Crystals and permanganate of potash, Potassium permanganate is a jack of all survival trades.When it comes to survival, the more you know, the more you can do with less. Like wilderness medicine, it also often becomes about improvising with less than ideal tools.

I first learned about the usefulness of this chemical while watching a Survivor Man episode titled Sonoran Desert. In the Sonoran Desert episode (Season 1 Episode 2), Les Stroud demonstrates how mixing Potassium permanganate and glycerin will start a chemical fire. Intrigued, I did some digging

 Scientists produce new drug in fight against Ebola virus

An Auburn University research team has produced a new drug candidate that could one day slow or even stop the deadly Ebola virus.  The group, led by professor of chemistry and biochemistry Stewart Schneller, has designed a compound aimed at reversing the immune-blocking abilities of certain viruses, including Ebola… Read more

Attempt to develop synthetic catalysts to split water

Plants use photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugars and oxygen. The process starts in a cluster of manganese, calcium and oxygen atoms at the heart of a protein complex called photosystem II, which splits water to form oxygen gas, protons and electrons… Read more

Newly developed sponge helps soak up carbon dioxide

A sponge-like plastic that sops up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) might ease our transition away from polluting fossil fuels and toward new energy sources, such as hydrogen. The material – a relative of the plastics used in food containers – could play a role in President Obama’s plan to cut CO2 emissions 30 per cent by 2030, and could also be integrated into power plant smokestacks in the future… Read more 

Foam helps maximize enhanced oil recovery

A Rice University laboratory has provided proof that foam may be the right stuff to maximize enhanced oil recovery (EOR). In tests, foam pumped into an experimental rig that mimicked the flow paths deep underground proved better at removing oil from formations with low permeability than common techniques involving water, gas, surfactants or combinations of the three… Read more
