Catalysis 101: Understanding Chemisorption

Catalysis 101: Understanding Chemisorption

Chemical adsorption, also known as chemisorption is the process that results from a chemical bond between adsorbate molecules and particular surface locations on a material which are called active sites. This article will outline the process of chemisorption and its...

An Insight into Plasma Deposition and Magnetron Sputtering

Plasma deposition is a highly versatile advanced manufacturing technique that can be used to deposit layers of a variety of materials over objects of varying sizes and shapes. There are several different methods that fall under the umbrella of plasma deposition, but...
Coupling Mass Spectrometry with Thermal Analysis: The Benefits

Coupling Mass Spectrometry with Thermal Analysis: The Benefits

What is a Mass Spectrometer Mass spectrometry is an analytical tool that is beneficial for the measurement of the mass-to-charge ratio of one or more molecules or fragments of molecules in a sample. Usually, mass spectrometers are used for identifying known compounds...

Important Areas of Research in Heterogeneous Catalysis

Heterogeneous catalysis refers to a wide range of catalytic solids and industrial processes for producing chemicals, materials, and fuels. Because of its broad nature, academic and industrial research in heterogeneous catalysis can be based on anything from the atomic...
Plasma Treatment of Medical-Grade Polymers

Plasma Treatment of Medical-Grade Polymers

Plasma treatment of medical-grade polymers is a technique which is used to enhance their wettability as they are often challenging to print on and bond to because they have extremely low surface energy. Specialized plasma sampling mass spectrometers and Langmuir...
