    How Photoinitiators Have Revolutionized UV-curing

    Energy curing, more specifically, ultraviolet curing has been around since 1960s. However, UV-LED technology is slowly replacing conventional UV curing. The conventional process is used in various industries, offering several benefits over traditional ‘air’ drying techniques. These processes boost production speed; allow higher print quality, reduced rejection rates and glossy finishes. UV-LEDs are expected toRead more →

    Palladium And Ruthenium Catalyzed Reactions In Fine Chemical Industry

    Catalysts help speed up chemical reactions without themselves changing in the process. In chemical industries where reactions occur on a large scale, metal catalysts allow continuous acceleration improving reaction efficiency. Productivity is directly affected through the use of catalysts. Industrial catalytic procedures often require late transition metal catalysts for organic synthesis, prominently including platinum, palladiumRead more →

    Rare sugars: L-Rhamnose, D-Galactose and D-Mannose

    Carbohydrates, or as they are more commonly called sugars, are one of the four most important biological macromolecules. These are the primary sources of energy for most organisms. From single-celled bacteria to multicellular human beings, almost all organisms are dependent on sugars. Simple sugars, most prominently glucose, are abundant in nature. These are also theRead more →

    Advantages of PEF Over PET

    Polyesters are one of the major products of the plastic industry. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a common variation used in its production. PET is produced from terephthalic acid (PTA) and ethylene glycol (EG). PTA is derived from para-xylene which is produced through oil refining. While EG is also produced through ethylene obtained from oil cracking,Read more →
