What are Azo Compounds?

Azo compounds are a diverse set of both natural and synthetic molecules containing at least one double-bonded nitrogen group (the “azo” group). Though there is an extremely wide range of azo compounds, the most common are pigments and dyes. Bismarck Brown was the first commercial azo dye, which was produced from 1863. This sparked significant [...]

Importance of Fine Chemicals Sales Channel Partners

Fine chemical synthesis encompasses a broad variety of active ingredients and advanced intermediates used in downstream chemical manufacturing or formulation into end-products. Examples include glufosinate, an active ingredient in agrochemical herbicides for crop protection; and oxydiphthalic anhydride, a co-monomer for polyimides used in consumer electronics and aerospace. While large, multinational producers focus on commodity chemicals, [...]

What are Active Ingredients?

Active ingredients (AI) are the components of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals that express therapeutic, medicinal, or biochemical effects on living matter. Agrochemicals in particular encompass pesticides, herbicides and insecticides. They are formulated with inert or excipient chemicals, which either modulate an AI’s adverse effects or act as a delivery vehicle. Understanding the biological activity of an [...]

Precision Agrochemicals: A New Generation of Smart Farms

Agricultural professionals and environmentalists have warned that rates of global population growth far exceed projections for available food supplies. Although census bureaus have noted a gradual deceleration in population growth, it is not enough to allay concerns about future food scarcity. The current world population is approximately 7.8 billion people. Agriculturalists and food scientists are [...]

What is a High-Purity Solvent?

High-purity solvents are synthetically-distilled organic chemicals with broad industrial applications. They are crucial for the synthesis of complex Grignard reactions in laboratory conditions and are fundamentally important for improving agrochemical and pharmaceutical manufacture. Yet high-purity solvents are also integral to the production of various commercial products, including perfume. Jayhawk offers one such high-purity solvent, NBE [...]
