Release Date: 2006-12-07
Genre: Science

Dieses Buch geht auf eine Vorlesung an der Universität Heidelberg zurück und richtet sich in erster Linie an Studenten, aber auch an Hochschuldozenten, Chemielehrer und Industriechemiker. Es vermittelt Einblicke in die moderne Naturstoffchemie und die Entwicklung komplexer Moleküle (asymmetrische und heterozyklische Verbindungen, polyzyklische Strukturen, makrozyklische und kleine Ringe) in der chemischen Industrie. Ein wichtiges Anliegen des Autors besteht darin, exemplarisch zu belegen, welche Aspekte eine Rolle spielen, wenn man im technischen Maßstab komplexe Verbindungen "auf elegantem Weg" herstellen will. So lernt der Leser die Grundlagen, die für einen jungen Chemiker in der chemischen Industrie unentbehrlich sind. Das Buch deckt ein breites Spektrum von Naturstoffen oder davon abgeleiteten Substanzen ab, darunter Farbstoffe wie etwa Indigo, in der Nahrungsmittelindustrie verwendete Verbindungen wie Coffein, Vanillin, Carotenoide und Aminosäuren, Arzneimittel wie Antibiotika, Opioide, Lipstatin und Steroide, Agrochemikalien wie Herbizide, Fungizide und Insektizide oder auch Duftstoffe wie Moschus und Damascon. Jedes Kapitel liefert auch historische und soziale Hintergrundinformationen zu dem jeweiligen Naturstoff und beschreibt seine biologische Aktivität, seine Entdeckung und seine wichtigsten Modifikationen durch die industrielle Chemie. In vielen Fällen wird die industrielle Synthese mit der Biosynthese verglichen. Überdies beleuchtet das Buch moderne Aspekte und zukünftige Entwicklungen in der Naturstoffsynthese. Ohne auf jeden industriell hergestellten Naturstoff einzugehen - was angesichts der Fülle der Substanzen in einem Lehrbuch auch gar nicht möglich ist -, bietet das verständlich geschriebene Werk einen guten Überblick über das gesamte Gebiet. Dabei kommt die "grüne Chemie" ebenso zur Sprache wie die Atomökonomie und "Eleganz" in der industriellen Naturstoffsynthese.

Genre: Chemical industry

In modern age chemical industries have permeated most extensively in comparison with other industries and are progressing at a very rapid pace. Chemical Industry in India is one of the fastest growing industries under the Indian economy. The chemical industry comprises the companies that produce industrial chemicals. Central to the modern world economy, it converts raw materials into more than 70,000 different products. Chemicals have contributed in various sectors like food industry, fertilizers, perfumery, fragrance and flavour etc. Chemicals are used to make a wide variety of consumer goods, as well as thousands inputs to agriculture, manufacturing, construction, and service industries. There are numerous chemicals produced in chemical industry for example chloroform, caffeine, fertilizers , dyes, drug intermediates, herbicide, inorganic salts, copper sulphate, acetaldehyde etc. The chemical industry itself consumes 26 percent of its own output. The Chemical Industry in India is based on the idea of diversification. For example inorganic chemicals is the sector where the growth rate is near about 9% and the chemicals produced in this sector are mainly used in alkalis, fertilizers, etc. Depending on the product categories the chemical industry is divided in many other sectors like drugs and pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, fine chemicals like dyes and paints etc. The chemical industry in India which generates almost 13% of total national export is growing annually at a growth rate anywhere between 10% and 12%. This book majorly deals with the molecular formula, raw materials, properties, laboratory testing, manufacturing process explained with flow diagrams and uses of the chemicals. The major contents of the book are inorganic salts, inorganic chemicals, industrial gas, fertilizers, alum, caffeine, ceramic chemicals etc. This book covers the production of more than 100 chemicals for example acetanilide, methylamine, butylamine, linalol, phosphorous, salicylic acid etc. This book should be of great value to young chemical engineers and chemists who are just entering the field but those already practicing will find much of interest and use for broadening of their insight in to fields in which they are only marginally informed. It is hoped that this book will aid to young engineers, chemical, civil, mechanical and electrical as well as chemists, in understanding the value of chemical, the type of problems met in their production and method for solving these problems.

Genre: Business & Economics

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, University of Bradford (Management School), 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The chemical industry is truly a global industry. It has major strongholds throughout the world, in particular Western Europe and the United States of America. Large chemical sectors have also been created in Saudi Arabia and India, Russia is a major producer in Eastern Europe, whilst in the Far East, China, South Korea and Taiwan are important producers (Business Ratios, 2001). The main focus of the industry is the processing and manufacturing of raw materials and the supply of semi-processed raw materials to other industries. Marketing therefore concentrates on the business-to-business sale of commodity products, with demand being dependent on global economic factors and the level of consumer expenditure - particularly in developed countries (Keynotes, 2000). Due to its vast geographic spread, the industry is relentlessly impacted by the internationalisation of business and its players operate under vastly differing socioeconomic climates. Chemical producers in the West are coming under increasing pressure to match the costs of their global rivals, particularly China, but with substantial differences in environmental protection, government intervention, labour costs and health and safety issues, this is a major challenge. Therefore the objectives of this assignment will be to: 1. Review the trends and developments in the fine chemicals industry. 2. Evaluate the trade and investment theories for the Fine Chemicals Industry in China. 3. Investigate the possible forms of market entry strategies. 4. Consider the strategy and structure of a typical Western company and how it should react. (As Bayer Chemicals (BCH) can be regarded as a major player in the global chemicals business it will be used to illustrate this) 5. Make recommendations, based on the findings of the assignment.

Fine chemicals are the chemicals which are produced in comparatively small quantities and in relatively pure state. In chemical technology, a distinction is made between bulk chemicals, which are produced in massive quantities by standardized reactions, and fine chemicals, which are custom produced in smaller quantities for special uses. There is a very large number of fine chemicals that are produced, and thus the chemistries of producing them need to be flexible, whereas the atom economy is not as critical as for bulk chemicals. Some of the examples of fine chemicals are acetazolamide, albendazole, amitriptyline, azithromycin, benzothiazide, captopril, carbamazepine, chloroquine, etc. Owing to the small volume and often changing chemistry, fine chemicals production is more expensive, generates more waste and requires a higher research investment per kilogram. However, fine chemicals are produced in industrial quantities unlike research chemicals, which are produced only in the laboratory. Fine chemicals correspond to a distinct segment of the chemical industry, including low tonnage molecules (typically 10 to 20 Kt.). Pharmaceutical and Biological products, perfumes, photographic chemicals and electronic grade reagents are examples of fine chemicals. High purity reagents (99.999999% pure) are also classified as fine chemicals. Globally, the fine chemicals industry continues to be very fragmented in spite of some consolidation, partly due to the limited impact of economy of scale on the business. While, fine chemicals do offer limited albeit real opportunities for product differentiation, in contrast to commodity chemicals, they are unlike specialities. While, fine chemicals do offer limited albeit real opportunities for product differentiation, in contrast to commodity chemicals, they are unlike specialities, which offer much larger scope for standing out due to an enhanced contribution of technical services and application know how. This book is a comprehensive reference on one of the most exciting and challenging segments of the modern chemical industry, and a practical guide for developing and succeeding in the multibillion fine chemicals business. Some fundamentals of this book are synonyms, molecular formula and other properties of fine chemicals like albendazole, amitriptyline, azithromycin, benzothiazide, captopril, carbamazepine, chloroquine, etc. This book is an invaluable resource for technologists, professionals and those who want to venture in this field.

Chemicals play an important part in different fields such as healthcare, food production and telecommunications. Under certain conditions, the large scale production and use of certain chemicals may result in the degradation of our environment and adverse impact to human health and wildlife. Acetophenone is the simplest aromatic ketone organic compound and it has a sweet taste and smell that resembles that of oranges. It is used for various purposes in the industry. Acetophenone is a colorless liquid with a sweet pungent taste. Alcohols are one of the most important molecules in organic chemistry. They can be prepared from many different types of compounds, and they can be converted into many different types of compounds. The allethrins are a pair of related synthetic compounds used in insecticides. They are synthetic pyrethroids, a synthetic form of a chemical found naturally in the chrysanthemum flower. Acetaldehyde is a key raw material in the production of a wide range of chemical products such as paint binders in alkyd paints and as a plasticizer for plastics. Acetaldehyde is also used a base in the manufacture of acetic acid, another platform chemical with many applications. Acetaldehyde is also used as an aromatic agent and is found naturally in fruits and fruit juices. Formaldehyde, also known as methanal, is a colorless and flammable gas that has a pungent smell and is soluble in water. Formaldehyde is used in Circuit Board Manufacture, Laboratory Chemicals, Paper Coatings, Photochemicals, Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing and Rubber Manufacture. Hydroquinone is a Melanin Synthesis Inhibitor. Hydroquinone is mainly used in photosensitive materials, rubber, dyes, pharmaceutical industry. The Indian chemical industry is an integral component of Indian economy, contributing around 6.7 per cent of the Indian GDP. With Asia’s growing contribution to the global chemical industry, India emerges as one of the focus destinations for chemical companies worldwide. This book will be a mile stone for its readers who are new to this sector, will also find useful for professionals, entrepreneurs, those studying and researching in this important area.

Publisher: Chemical Heritage Foundation
ISBN: 0941901297
Release Date: 2001
Genre: History

Fred Aftalion's international perspective of the history of chemistry integrates the story of chemical science with that of chemical industry. This new edition includes events from 1990 to 2000, when major companies began selling off their divisions, seeking to specialize in a particular business. Aftalion explores the pitfalls these companies encountered as well as the successes of "contrarians"--those companies that remained broad and diversified. He uses BASF, Dow, and Bayer as examples of true contrarians.

Revising concepts for interfirm collaboration

Author: Nils Klingemann
ISBN: 9783832468033
Release Date: 2003-05-13
Genre: Business & Economics

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Technical advances and strategic reconsiderations in the Business-to-Business (B2B) market have led companies to meet new challenges with innovative forms of collaboration. Since 1999, industrial organizations have separately attempted to enable common interfirm trade with the help of online trading platforms and e-marketplaces. In most industries, the use of these platforms has been reduced to low numbers of intra-industry transactions between first-movers and strategic visionaries. Despite their damped optimism, companies' readiness has progressed along with the market potential. Tackling the initial weaknesses, an integrative B2B trading network that is based on true interoperability and openness is now well-positioned to exploit this increased potential. At the example of Eastman Chemical Corporation, this paper analyzes the possibilities of creating a completely revised interfirm collaboration network.

Genre: Medical

This second edition has been designed to monitor the progress in develop ment over the past few years and to build on the information given in the first edition. It has been extensively revised and updated. My thanks go to all who have contributed to this work. D.F.W. May 1996 Preface to the first edition This book is the result of a group of development scientists feeling that there was an urgent need for a reference work that would assist chemists in understanding the science involved in the development of new products. The approach is to inform in a way that allows and encourages the reader to develop his or her own creativity in working with marketing colleagues on the introduction of new products. Organised on a product category basis, emphasis is placed on formulation, selection of raw materials, and the technology of producing the products discussed. Performance considerations, safety, product liability and all aspects of quality are covered. Regulations governing the production and sale of cosmetic products internationally are described, and sources for updated information provided. Throughout the book, reference is made to consumer pressure and environmental issues-concerns which the development scientist and his or her marketing counterpart ignore at their own, and their employer's peril. In recent years, many cosmetic fragrances and toiletry products have been converted from aerosols to mechanically press uri sed products or sprays, and these are described along with foam products such as hair conditioning mousses.
