Danish chemist Søren Peter Lauritz Sørensen invented the pH scale in 1909. He developed the concept as a way of measuring acidity while working at the Carlsberg research lab in Copenhagen. Even today, the pH scale is an essential diagnostic tool that’s used to determine the degrees of acidity and alkalinity of a wide range of substances.

Toll blending is a type of chemical contract manufacturing in which a client pays a fee (or toll) to another company to mix or blend specific products on their behalf. Although the tolling company or subcontractor mixes the substance, the rights to the products belong to the company that owns the patent.  Toll blending (also known as custom processing and toll milling) is a common practice used by businesses from a range of industries including automotive, pharmaceutical, and food processing.  Continue reading to learn more about our toll blending services and the types of projects w ..read more

In chemistry, valence (also known as valency) is used to measure how powerful an element is in combining molecules or chemical compounds.  The concept was proposed in 1852 by Sir Edward Frankland, who sought to explain why atoms and molecules combine in certain ways. It was later discovered that the valency of an element is directly related to the positions of electrons in the outermost shell of atoms. Continue reading to learn more about the concept of valence, how it was invented, and its impact on modern chemistry.

Titration is one of the most common types of quantitative analysis performed in chemistry. While several individuals contributed to its development, titration as a method and complete setup is largely credited to the French chemist François Antoine Henri Descroizilles.  He created the first burette in 1791 and was the first known chemist to assemble a titration apparatus, although not in the same form as we know it today. Other key scientists who contributed to the invention of titration include Karl Friedrich Mohr, Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac, and Étienne Ossian Henry. Continue reading to le ..read more

Penicillin was accidentally discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928 while he was investigating the bacteria Staphylococcus. He observed that the presence of mould could kill or prevent the bacteria from reproducing any further. The fortunate breakthrough was a historical turning point in medicine, paving the way for the widespread use of modern antibiotics.  In this article, we’ll explore the origins of penicillin in more detail and explain how this potentially life-saving antibiotic is manufactured.  The origins of penicillin Discovered nearly 100 years ago, penicillin is the world ..read more
