A new method of sample preparation, developed by a group of US scientists, promises to increase the sensitivity of asbestos analysis 100-fold, to the point where it can be used to detect the substance in soil. Although at a low level, asbestos contamination in soil is of potential concern. ... more
CEM & USEPA Enter into R&D Agreement for Research into Green Microwave Chemistry Scale-up Methods
CEM Corporation has signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The goal of the agreement is to develop large-scale, microwave chemistry methods for a wide variety of chemistries using solvents that are more environmentally friendly, such as water or polyethylene glycol (PEG). These environmentally-friendly solvents could be employed to produce valuable intermediates and products useful in the development of pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, and nanomaterials.
According to the agency, the EPA has developed new chemical processes and solvent schemes that are significantly safer for the environment. Under the terms of the research agreement, CEM will contribute the time of its scientists and apply existing technology or technology currently in development at the Company to establish scale-up protocols of EPA chemical processes. Likewise, the EPA will also contribute the time of its scientists, and will provide required laboratory analysis in support of the project.
