Sustainability in the Fine Chemical Industry: How Hydrogen “Waste” Can Help Support a Greener Future

Sustainability is more than a buzzword; it is an acknowledgment of the responsibility of individuals and organizations to meet the needs of our society in a way that will ensure the long-term health of our planet. There is no single solution to this problem but rather it will take millions of positive choices that bring [...]

What Role Do Halogenation Reactions Play in Modern Industry?

Addition and substitution are the two main types of halogenation reactions that predominate in modern industry. The former is best characterized by bromination reactions, where bromine reacts with an unsaturated molecule like ethylene. Substitution reactions can be exemplified by the reaction of chlorine with ethane or propane. This article will explore the role that halogenation [...]

What is Sulfonation’s Role in Modern Industry?

Sulfonation is a valuable chemical reaction used to prepare a wide range of sulfonic acid derivatives and sulfonyl chlorides. There are many sulfonic acids that have the general formula RSO­3H, where R represents an organic substituent such as an alkyl or aryl group. Sulfonic acids are typically made by the reaction of a hydrocarbon with [...]

Global Integrated Circuit Shortage and Its Impact on Fine Chemical Suppliers

The current global shortage of integrated circuits (or ICs) is the result of ongoing logistical challenges and manufacturing delays caused by COVID-19 shutdowns, as well as largescale market shifts that were in motion before the pandemic began. A further negative development is a recent fire in a Tokyo Renesas chip manufacturing plant. Renesas has nearly [...]

Impact of Container Shortages on Custom Chemical Manufacturers

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, global trade was facing clear and obvious risks such as reduced workforces and interrupted supply due to necessary travel restrictions. Yet it was far more difficult to predict the complex ripple effects that would occur as disruptions cascaded down the supply chain. An example of [...]

Custom Chemical Synthesis of Cosmetics

Cosmetic chemicals represent extremely lucrative business opportunities. But the market is competitive, regulators are necessarily strict, and consumers are increasingly discerning. These three interconnected drivers have led to a range of long-term industry trends that dictate key performance indicators to custom chemicals manufacturers. Avoiding substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in skincare products, for example. [...]

Fine Chemicals: The Future of Communications – IoT, 5G & More

We are currently experiencing a revolution in telecommunications: 5G. The fifth generation of telecom networks has been driven by requirements for low latency, massive coverage, a huge reduction in network energy usage, all while connected to hundreds of electronic devices. This is made possible by exploiting millimeter waves (mmWave), an extremely high frequency, 30 – [...]

From Farm to Fork: How the European Green Deal Impacts Agrochemicals

Seismic shifts in behaviour, industry, and technology over the last century have dramatically impacted the ecological footprint of humanity. Simply producing the food that sustains our global population accounts for more than a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, almost 80% of waterway runoff is caused by agriculture. Food has therefore been identified as [...]

What are Agrochemicals?

Agrochemicals are pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers used for the management of ecosystems in agricultural sectors. Rudimentary variations on agrochemicals have been used for millennia to improve crop yields and control the populations of agricultural pests. The earliest known use of agrochemicals dates to roughly 2500 B.C. when Sumerian farmers relied on Sulphur (S) compounds to [...]
