In line with best practice, Bridgnorth Aluminium has installed an Achenbach Airpure exhaust air purification system to separate and recover hydrocarbons from the mill exhaust--in this case tetracene.
In April, researchers led by physicist Vladimir Bulovic at MIT's Center for Excitonics reported in Nature Communications that they had imaged excitons traveling through an organic crystal called tetracene in real time.
8) Direct borylation of tetracene 7 provided a 1:1 mixture of 2,8- and 2,9-diborylated tetracenes 8 and 9 (Scheme 6).
2009) 2,8- and 2,9 Diboryltetracenes as useful building blocks for extended [pi]-conjugated tetracenes.
Lead, brass and other metals from ammunition along with all the constituents of the propellants, including trinitrotoluene, picric acid, diphenylamine, nitrocellulose, nitroglycerin, potassium nitrate, barium nitrate, tetracene, diazodintrophenol, phosphorus, peroxides, thiocarbamide, potassium chlorate, vinyl fluoride, vinyl chloride, sodium fluoride and sodium sulfate.
Examples of topics covered include ultrasound- induced functionalization and solubilization of carbon nanotubes for potential nanotextiles applications, field-effect of transistors of tetracene single crystal on top of a flexible substrate, novel continuous poly(vinylidene fluoride) nanofibers, controlled conductive polymer coating on wood microfibers via layer-by-layer nanoassembly, pressure sensing fabrics, and self-cleaning cotton fabrics.
In order to improve electrical conductivity, tetracene is replaced with carbon black.
Offices and lunchrooms, a chemistry lab, chemical storage, tetracene manufacture, lead styphnate manufacture, styphnic acid manufacture, chemical mixing facilities and a waste treatment center are widely scattered.

When the researchers injected electric current to "excite" the tetracene to emit light, the light bounced back and forth between mirrors in the material, eventually producing beams of intense yellow-green light.
