Latest Acid Stories
A Los Alamos National Laboratory research team has harnessed neutrons to view for the first time the critical role that an elusive molecule plays in certain biological reactions.
People who turn to fatty comfort foods, such as a scoop of ice cream or a piece of chocolate cake, during times of emotional stress know firsthand how calming these foods can be.
During the 1970s and 1980s, researchers and policymakers became increasingly worried about multiple consequences of acidic emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the stacks of power stations, and eventually they were controlled.
Chemists at the University of California, Riverside have accomplished in the lab what until now was considered impossible: transform a family of compounds which are acids into bases.
A simple cut to the skin unleashes a complex cascade of chemistry to stem the flow of blood.
Now science not only confirms that the unique oral hyaluronic acid provided in Purity Products HA formulas actually works (doctors were skeptical a decade ago, believing only injected HA would be beneficial), but that it dramatically improves skin hydration, mollifies wrinkles and significantly supports joint health and function. Plainview, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2011 In the wake of a jaw-dropping ABC News report over a decade ago, when hyaluronic acid was first identified as the molecule that...
University of British Columbia researchers â€“ using an innovative, atom-by-atom substitution method â€“ have uncovered the mechanism by which a particular class of drugs controls irregular heartbeats.

All animals face the challenge of deciding which chemicals in the environment are useful and which are harmful.
BATON ROUGE, La., May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) announced today that it will increase its global prices for elemental bromine to $4500/MT minimum delivered and its global prices for hydrobromic acid by a minimum of $650/MT.
Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
