New novel method to trap hazardous gases

ut-dallas-kui-tanDALLAS, US: A team of researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) has developed a novel method for trapping potentially harmful gases within microscopic organometallic structures.  These metal organic frameworks (MOFs), are made of different building blocks composed of metal ion centres and organic linker molecules. Together they form a honeycomb-like structure that can trap gases within each comb or pore. Read More

Preparing Ethylene Oxide by Chlorohydrin Process

ethylene-oxide Ethylene Oxide also called as epoxyethane, oxirane. It is cyclic ether, simplest epoxide with faintly sweet odor and colorless flammable gas at room temperature. Ethylene oxide is important to the production of detergents, thickeners, solvents, plastics, and various organic chemicals such as ethylene glycol, ethanolamines, simple and complex glycols, polyglycol ethers and other compounds. It is extremely flammable and explosive and is used. Read More
