Rietveld X-ray analysis helps REACH chemical assessment grouping, fewer tests

By Eileen De Guire / July 19, 2011

Grouping of substances can expedite EU REACH compliance. In late 2006, the European Union passed the legislation known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), which became effective on June 1, 2007. The legislation extends globally to any manufacturer or supplier wanting to do business in the EU. The European Chemicals Agency has…

Studying wurtzite under pressure could lead to new class of durable materials

By / October 20, 2010

Wang and colleagues used small angle X-ray diffraction and wide-angle X-ray diffraction to observe changes in the molecular structure of wurtzite crystal under pressure. It may come as a bit of a surprise, but the strongest material in the world isn’t very strong. Subject it to ultra-high pressure, though, and graphite becomes the hardest substance…

Use of Heat-Treated Water Treatment Residuals in Fly Ash-Based Geopolymers

By / January 27, 2010

Volume 93 Issue 1, Pages 272 – 278 Xiaolu Guo, Huisheng Shi, Warren DickPublished Online: Oct 20 2009 1:34PM DOI: 10.1111/j.1551-2916.2009.03331.x ABSTRACT Geopolymerization is a developing field that can beneficially use heat-treated water treatment residuals (WTRs) to create fly ash-based geopolymers. In this study, geopolymers made only from fly ash (FA) and from FA plus…
