IMP Develops Catalyst Adsorbent Material that Could Help Eliminate Organic Nitrogen Compounds in Crude Oil

IMP Develops Catalyst Adsorbent Material that Could Help Eliminate Organic Nitrogen Compounds in Crude Oil

The Mexican Oil Institute (IMP) developed a catalyst adsorbent material that removes 80 percent of organic compounds from hydrocarbon charges before starting the process of hydrodesulfurization (sulfur removing from the hydrocarbon). It also allows Pemex (Mexican Oil Company) to generate ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) more quickly and cheaply. [More]

TU Wien Researchers Develop New Procedure to Produce Angular Polyimide Particles

TU Wien Researchers Develop New Procedure to Produce Angular Polyimide Particles

Polyimides are considered to be a lot denser than metals and are capable of withstanding chemically aggressive solvents and heat. This is the main reason why polyimides remain popular in the industry especially in aerospace applications or as an insulation layer used on PCBs. Researchers at TU Wien have developed a synthesis procedure, providing new possibilities for polyimides. For the first time, it is now possible to develop angular polyimide particles. [More]
