  • Reaching the Next Level of Microwave-assisted Organic Synthesis

    Microwave-assisted organic synthesis (MAOS) has become an increasingly popular discipline in modern chemical method development. At first, reaction optimization and method development on a small scale were the main areas of interest in MAOS. However, the growing acceptance and success of this innovative microwave technology revealed the necessity for large-scale synthesis of valuable compounds using microwave heating, especially in industrial laboratories more

  • New Silicone Technologies for Skin Care

    In today's competitive skin care market, consumers look for a range of benefits, superior aesthetics and cost effectiveness. In response, formulators strive to create products that are multifunctional, easy to use and effective in small quantities. At the same time, the most successful products deliver benefits that stand out from those of the competition. Creams, lotions and color cosmetics must be easy to spread and comfortable to wear, without feeling tacky or greasy. Silicones have been popular ingredients in skin care products for more than fifty years. These versatile materials are known for their emolliency, wetting and spreading characteristics and ability to provide unique aesthetics. As technology continues to evolve, silicones increasingly offer multifunctional, high performance properties. This article reviews some of the newest silicone technologies available for the formulation of innovative skin care products more

  • Quantification of BRCA1 Expression Level Using Standard RT-PCR Reagents - a Sensitive Method for the Detection of Low Amounts of Transcripts

    Mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility gene, BRCA1, occur in the majority of families with multiple members affected with breast or ovarian cancer. Women who inherit a BRCA1 mutation have 40%-80% risk of developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer. However, up to 90% of breast cancers are sporadic, and mutations in BRCA1 seem to be a rare event in sporadic breast tumors. more
