Organic Chemicals

Industry Overview:

Life as we know it is dependent on carbon – this one element is a primary component in every known lifeform, and is at the core of all biological processes. In a way, carbon defines life; as such, it also defines organic chemicals. In most cases, the presence of carbon is the deciding factor in separating the organic from the inorganic. Although organic in the common vernacular means “involving organisms or the products of their life processes”, organic chemicals are frequently synthetically derived.

Even synthetically-produced organic chemicals have a huge role to play in our modern economy. They play an especially large part in the “green” movement, making products more environmentally-friendly and sustainable. They influence most all other industries, from drugs and food to paints and plastics.

Common Applications:

  • Carbon
  • Organic synthesis
  • Compounds – natural, synthetic
  • Analysis – NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, etc.
  • Reactivity
  • Separation – distillation, solvent extraction, crystallization, etc.
  • Filtration
  • Extraction
  • Hydrolysis
  • Properties
  • Functional groups
  • Manufacturing – continuous, batch, toll manufacturing
  • Pollution prevention
  • Dedrimers
  • Metallocenes
