Meeting the Challenges of Manufacturing Fluorochemical-Based APIs

Producing fluorinated molecules for large-scale production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) is a highly specialized field. Incorporating fluorine into APIs can change key characteristics of the molecule, such as its metabolic stability, ability to dissolve in fats and other nonpolar solvents, capacity to bind to protein, as well as its acidity and basicity. These changes […]

fine silica for flash chromatography

Introducing M.S.GEL™ Spherical Silica Grades for Flash Chromatography and UHPLC

Accurate, consistent chromatography analysis relies on the right instruments and components for each specific technique. That’s why AGC has developed new grades of M.S.GEL™ spherical silica as packing materials for flash chromatography and ultra-high performance liquid chromatography. Silica gels are reliable, versatile chromatography packing materials. Silica is polar adsorbent, which means in the stationary phase […]

Research Shows Microsphere Silica Gels Improve Cosmetic and Skincare Product Formulations

Cosmetic and skincare formulations use a precise balance of ingredients to achieve the desired structure and performance of the final product. Formulators must understand the chemistry of each ingredient and how they will work together to develop products that deliver the desired performance properties like absorption, smooth application and stability, to name a few. Additionally, […]

Fine Silica Fillers Improve Performance and Reduce the Cost of 3D Printing Resins

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of creating solid three-dimensional objects, layer by layer, with the use of computer design modeling. It is commonly used to make prototypes and models used for market research, testing and validation purposes. Because 3D printing speeds up the prototyping process, it enables manufacturers to bring […]

The importance of silica quality in providing accurate and consistent HPLC results

The most important factor that influences accurate and consistent HPLC results is quality of the packing material. AGC has been producing the highest quality spherical silica gels for decades with our proprietary process under the brand name M.S. GEL. They offer the following benefits for both separation and purification: High purity Perfect spherical shape Uniform […]

Fluorinated Cation Exchange Membrane Technology Improves Electrolysis and Electrodialysis Processes

Membrane-based electrolysis and electrodialysis use an electrical field to separate charged and non-charged molecules. Cation exchange membranes are used to produce or recover chemicals by electrolysis processes, and industrial processes require membranes that are highly resistant to chemicals. Fluorinated cation exchange membranes with a sulfonic acid group provide this resistance and other performance advantages like […]

3 Benefits of Covering Greenhouses with ETFE Film

When you invest in greenhouse structures, it’s important to take into account the durability of the covering material as well as the benefits to the plants that it will need to protect. Whether you are building new structures or considering a retrofit to increase your yield, ETFE film improves the growth efficiency of fruits, vegetables […]

ion exchange membrane

Improve Treatment and Purification with Ion Exchange Membranes

Ion exchange membranes are semipermeable membranes that separate dissolved ions in a liquid. Depending on the membrane’s electric charge, they allow certain ions to pass through while blocking others. Ion exchange membranes are used in manufacturing processes that require treatment and purification. Membrane technology is more cost-effective than evaporation technology because it is not energy-intensive, […]

Silica gel for HPLC packing

Advantages of Silica Gels for HPLC Packing Applications

Silica gel is one of the most versatile and effective agents used in chromatography today, making it also one of the most popular. It is a polar absorbent with slight acidity, enabling it to absorb basic contents in a material that needs separation during chromatography, while also remaining neutral and maintaining its own structure throughout […]
