China Biotech Market Outpaces US Market

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Mar 04, 2014

There's been a lot of interest on the trade show floor in China Biotech Markets recently, and with good reason. While the US government's added ARRA life science research support the last few years it is winding down, in China, the government continues to support not only life science research, but physical and chemical science research programs as well.

Green Chemistry Synthesis Uses Mechanics Rather Than Solvents

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Apr 10, 2013

Green chemistry refers to a number of processes and practices that minimize the toxic or hazardous effects of chemicals in the environment, the lab, or the manufacturing plant. One way to go green is to cut down on the use of dangerous solvents in reactive processes, thereby reducing waste and improving lab safety. Though sometimes a less toxic catalyst or reagent can be employed from the outset, reused, or made inert eventually, another way to get a chemical reaction is to apply physical force instead. Called mechanochemistry, it involves the application of mechanical engineering to chemistry. Instead of adding a solvent, agitation is used to achieve chemical synthesis.
