Polybutadiene in Impact Polystyrene
Application Note

Oxford Instuments

Polybutadiene (or rubber) is added during polymerisation of styrene to increase the flexibility of polystyrene polymers. It is important to closely monitor the amount of polybutadiene added, so that the flexibility of the polystyrene polymer may be regulated.

Mineral Oil in Crystal Polystyrene
Application Note

Oxford Instuments

Mineral Oil is added to Crystal Polystyrene to increase its flexibility. This process requires a high degree of regulation, as the addition of too much mineral oil will dissolve the polystyrene polymer.

Determination of Xylene Solubles in Polypropylene
Application Note

Oxford Instuments

‘Xylene solubles’ is an historically established term denoting the percentage of soluble species in polypropylene homo- and co-polymers. This measure is widely used for product quality control and monitoring physical properties of the polymer during synthesis and processing.

Determination of Wax Content in Oils
Application Note

Oxford Instuments

Wax content is an important characteristic affecting the physical properties of petroleum crude oils, in particular their viscosity. Thus, measuring wax content has become a routine analytical requirement for product quality control. The precise monitoring of the wax content in oils helps to predict and avoid wax blockage so that equipment can be maintained for high quality standards during oil processing.

Standard Method for Hydrogen Content in Fuels
Application Note

Oxford Instuments

The hydrogen content of aviation fuel is an important parameter as it determines the combustion properties of the fuel. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance offers the opportunity to monitor the hydrogen content of fuels rapidly, non-destructively and with minimal sample preparation.

BD Cytometric Bead Array Cell Signaling Flex Set System
Application Note

BD Biosciences

The BD™ Cytometric Bead Array (CBA) Cell Signaling Flex Set system lets you achieve high productivity in cell signaling studies by extracting more data from less sample faster than traditional Western blot techniques.

Bacterial Detection and Live/Dead Discrimination by Flow Cytometry
Application Note

BD Biosciences

Accurate determination of live, dead, and total bacteria is important in many microbiology applications. Traditionally, viability in bacteria is synonymous with the ability to form colonies on solid growth medium and to proliferate in liquid nutrient broths. These traditional, culture-based tests are time-consuming and can work poorly with slow-growing or viable, but non-culturable organisms.

Miniaturisation of Gas Chromatography Equipment
Application Note

Dolomite

Gas Chromatography (GC) is a highly sensitive chemical analysis technique with a broad range of applications. Existing commercial GC systems are generally quite bulky and fragile. Microfluidics enables miniaturisation of the gas chromatography column and low power methods for column heating.
