Objective: The activation of relatively inert non-polar chemical bonds is key to numerous catalytic functionalization processes generating high value-added chemical products.
The revolutionary iPower technology employs lower frequency energy to quickly remove free moisture and penetrate the sample for fast and efficient heating, while higher frequency energy helps create a uniform heating environment to fully remove bound moisture or non-polar solvents.
Hence, this study focused on the adsorption kinetics of the interaction of polar (water) and non-polar hydrocarbons (pentane and benzene) with graphene.
Product name: Masurf UV-350 Attributes/Comments: Ultraviolet light absorber for non-polar, hydrocarbon solvent systems, is designed to impart UV protection to fabrics and hard surfaces.
New Zealand scientists have developed a multilayer oil-in-water emulsion system as a carrier for non-polar compounds.
It is well known that it is easier to obtain stable emulsions with non-polar emollients like mineral oil than with the polar synthetic or natural moieties (Tegosoft PBE, INCI: PPG-14 butyl ether or Tegosoft CT, INCI: Caprylic/capric triglyceride).
BGP: Brilliant General Purpose Series for non-polar solvents such as A _type gravure, make-and-use water-based coatings, and some plastisol applications
Gas hydrates are crystalline water-based solids physically resembling ice, in which small non-polar molecules (typically gases) or polar molecules with large hydrophobic moieties are trapped inside "cages" of hydrogen bonded water molecules.
Male and female albino mice of 21-25 g body weight were fed with progressively increasing oral doses (1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 g/kg mice body weight) of each of the non-polar extract of Boswellia carteri and the chloroformic successive extract of Commiphora myrrha oleo-gum-resins for testing acute lethal toxicity.
The company says beneficial properties of Elastostat are its permanent antistatic effect, mechanical properties like improved impact resistance and compatibility with non-polar polymers.
