  • Chemical Runaways

    Many chemicals such as petroleum are vital to everyday life. We use petroleum products in manufacturing, to heat our homes, get us places, and run engines. The volitability of these chemicals can be catastrophic if not handled properly. This is the case with the T2 Labaratories in Jacksonville, Florida that killed four and wounded thirty-two others. In December 2007, four lives were lost and many other where changed when an explosion occurred at the Jacksonville Florida plant at T2 Laboratories, Inc. T2 was producing methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl, which is a gasoline additive. The explosion caused T2 Laboratories to become destroyed and also caused damage to other businesses in the area causing windows to burst and throw…

  • Fold Purification Lab Report

    we can see that the correct enzyme has been successfully purified. Considering the SDS-PAGE results we can confidently say that the purification steps were effective at removing a large proportion of E.Coli proteins. However, not all E.Coli proteins have been removed as shown by the SDS-PAGE gel photo and further purification steps would be needed to have a pure Arginase protein. The increase in specific activity was also shown in the SDS-PAGE gel as the band in sample C was much thicker than in…

  • Notongooglenium Reaction Rate

    of hydrogenation of ethenol (vinyl alcohol)? Aim The aim of this experiment is to find the effect of the manganese oxide catalyst, a similar compound to Notongooglenium Oxide, on the rate of hydrogenation of ethenol (vinyl alcohol). Introduction Notongooglenium Notongooglenium is a newly discovered element with an atomic number of 24.5. Due to its placement on the periodic table between Chromium (24) and Manganese (25), it is believed to have a similar atomic and electronic structure to these…

  • Petrography Host Rocks

    Petrography of host rocks The Venarch manganese deposit is accommodated by volcanic and plutonic rocks. The volcanic strata mainly consist of basalt, trachybasalt, andesite, and basaltic andesite which are intruded by monzonite, monzodiorite, granodiorite, and syenite. The plutonic rocks are mostly granular in texture; however other textures such as graphic and poikilitic textures are present. The dominant minerals are plagioclase phenocrysts, quartz, K-feldspar, and hornblende and accessory…
