One skin care ideal that has changed over time is skin color. American ideals of skin health have always been tied to problematic ideas about race and economic class. White Americans have idealized a pale complexion for most of American history. A pale, creamy complexion and smooth, white hands not only signified that one was racially white, they also demonstrated one’s wealth by implying that a man—but far more importantly a woman—did not perform manual labor or work outside in the…Continue

The purpose of the classification and labelling system is to consider the hazards arising from normal handling and use of substances and preparations in the form they are placed on the market, i.e. to:
identify all the inherent physico-chemical and toxicological properties and for substances also the environmental properties, which may involve a risk during normal handling and use, - and
inform the general public about the hazards and adequate precautionary measures for…Continue

Cross-linking agents are chemical products that chemically form bonds between two hydrocarbons to solidify the oil. The reaction is a chemical one and typically can release a small amount of heat or absorb that amount of heat depending on the chemical used. Applichem has established long-term cooperation relations with numerous well-known pigment and dye enterprises both at home and abroad.

There are several major factors that influence the reaction rate and product quality in the above polycondensation process, such as dehydration of sodium sulfide, catalyst, and solvent. It is important to eliminate the water of the hydrated sodium sulfide to certain degree for producing a proper ‘sulfidizing’ agent. Incomplete dehydration results in a lower reaction rate and more undesired…Continue

In April 2014, the legislature of the Netherlands passed legislation prohibiting sale of glyphosate to individuals for use at home; commercial sales were not affected.
In June 2015, the French Ecology Minister asked nurseries and garden centers to halt over-the-counter sales of glyphosate in the form of Monsanto's Roundup. This was a nonbinding request and all sales of glyphosate remain legal…Continue

Early studies using calcium oxide, carbonate, and carboxylates reported low activities for the polymerization of LA, even in bulk at 120–180 °C. PolyGA and copolymers of GA with CL and L-LA have been prepared using Ca(acac)2, but again high temperatures (150–200 °C) are required. Under these conditions transesterification occurs, although to a lesser extent than in analogous Sn(Oct)2-initiated…Continue

Aniline is mainly used to prepare methylene diphenylamine and related compounds by condensation with formaldehyde. The condensation of diamine with phosgene yields methylene diphenyl diisocyanate, which is the precursor of polyurethane polymers.
Other uses include rubber-processing chemicals (9 percent), herbicides (2 percent) and dyes and pigments (2 percent). As additives of rubber, aniline…Continue

Sulfamic acid is primarily a precursor of sweet compounds. It reacts with cyclohexylamine, and then NaOH is added to get C6H11NHSO3Na, cyclamate. Related compounds are also sweeteners, such as potassium acetosulfonate.
Sulfonates have been used in the design of a wide range of therapeutic agents, such as antibiotics, nucleoside/nucleotide human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) reverse…Continue

Melamine is a triamine compound that was first discovered and synthesized in the early 1800s. It is deaminated to the oxytriazine structural analogues Ammeline, Ammelide, and cyanuric acid. Melamine is a chemical compound used in a variety of materials used in cleaning products, dry wipe boards and plastics, among other applications. Melamine is synthesized from urea, requires several purification…Continue

Sodium sulfate is produced on a very large scale as a by-product of several important industrial processes. In many cases, disposal of this material is difficult. As a result, there have been many efforts to use electrolytic salt splitting to recover both sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide. Because of major technical and economic problems, none of these efforts has been successful. The…Continue
