Lanxess designs a reverse osmosis system for real conditions

COLOGNE, GERMANY: Lanxess AG is continuously carrying out R&D in the field of water treatment, to ensure that the design process of reverse osmosis systems is even more successful in the future. Experts from the company presented the latest results – allowing an even better description of the separation behaviour of reverse osmosis (RO) membranes under realistic application conditions. The behaviour of RO membranes is determined under realistic service conditions by a large number of parameters.

BASF construction chemicals used to build world’s largest solar plant

OUARZAZATE, MOROCCO: BASF said that its construction chemicals are used in the construction of the concentrated solar power system in the Noor solar complex, Morocco, North Africa. Several BASF products were used in the construction of this project such as concrete admixtures, grout, mortars, sealants, and joint water-resistant sealants. The requirements for the construction of the world’s largest solar plant were varied and very specific. The material had to conform to construction specifications. Read More

Benedict’s reagent test for Monosaccharides

In the college days, all of us might have done simple chemistry tests. Generally, chemical tests use reagents to indicate the presence of a specific chemical in an unknown solution. The reagents which are used in the chemical test can cause a unique reaction to occur based on the chemical it reacts with, allowing one to know what chemically is the solution. All these tests are done with excitement and fun, without knowing exact principle and procedure. One of those chemistry tests is Benedict’s reagent test. Read More

Hydrochloric Acid Test for Carbonate

Hydrochloric acid is known as spirits of salt or acidum salis and its formula is HCl. Other name for HCl is muriatic acid. In muriatic acid Muriatic means pertaining to brine or salt. HCl is a strong acid, highly corrosive with many industrial applications. Hydrochloric acid is found naturally in gastric acid. Hydrochloric acid used in the manufacture of other industrial chemicals like phosphoric acid, chlorine dioxide, ammonium chloride, fertilisers, dyes. HCl is used as a refining ore in the production of tin and tantalum. Read More
