...introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that causes adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollution also has different components call Pollutants. (Wikipedia 2012) A pollutant is substance or energy introduced into the environment that has undesired effects, or adversely affects the usefulness of a resource. A pollutant may cause long- or short-term damage by changing the growth rate of plant or animal species, or by interfering with human amenities, comfort, health, or property values. (Wikipedia 2012) There are also different kinds of pollutants like greenhouse gases, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, petroleum and heavy metals. Carbon dioxide and methane are two of the most important of these gases, called greenhouse gases because they trap heat in the earth's atmosphere. This is already causing severe problems around the world and the situation will only get worse. The rising temperatures will likely lead to more severe weather events, which cause shifts in natural communities, and probably lead to greater species extinction rates, among numerous other effects. Pesticides are a broad group of chemicals that enable us to live more comfortable lives by and large, but whose main purpose underlies the central problem with pesticide pollution. They are all poisons. A lot of these chemicals will wash into our rivers and streams and cause direct toxicity to fishes, and may work their way up......

Ducor Chemical

...Ducor Chemical In the fall of 2000, Ducor Chemical received a research and development contract from one of their most important clients. The client had awarded Ducor with a twelve-month, sole-source contract for the R&D effort to create a new chemical that the client required for one of its future products. If Ducor could develop the product, the long-term production contract that would follow could generate significant profits over the next several years. In addition to various lab personnel who would be used as needed, the contract mandated that a senior chemist be assigned for the duration of the project. In the past, the senior chemists had been used mainly for internal rather than external customer projects. This would be the first time a senior chemist had been assigned to this client. With only four senior chemists on staff, the project manager expected the resource negotiation process with the lab manager to be an easy undertaking. Project manager: "I understand you've already looked over the technical requirements, so you should understand the necessity for assigning your best senior scientist." Lab manager: "All of my senior scientists are good. Any one of them can do the job. Based upon the timing of your project, I have decided to assign John Thornton." Project manager: "Just my luck! You assigned the only one I cannot work with effectively. I have had the misfortune of working with him before. He's extremely arrogant and unpleasant to work......

Chemical Hazards

...Industrial poisons These are mainly due to various chemical substances from industry, which get into public water supply. Usually they contain solvents, detergents, heavy metals, dyes, pigments, sulphides, organic substances etc. These chemicals may affect directly, by contact, to produce severe skin diseases, allergies or eczemoid reaction or chemical burns. Some toxins produce acute effects while others produce chronic effects. Sometimes, the chemicals are ingested by workers if they do not wash their hands before taking food various toxic chemicals, and their effects on health. One may come in contact with them through other means besides water. Consequences of a negative impact of poisons on the human body depend on many factors: gender, age and individual sensitivity of the body, the chemical structure and physical properties of the poison. Its concentration in the air, the amount of substance taken into the body, the duration and continuity of its revenue, as well as a number of related factors of production environment, such as temperature and humidity, noise, vibration. Industrial poisons enter the human body in two main ways: through the respiratory system and skin. Through airways fall poisons which are in air, preferably as a vapor, gas and dust. Through skin penetrate oily liquid substances which highly soluble in lipids (fats and fat-like substances). Delivery of poisons through the gastrointestinal tract with contaminated hands when eating is also possible. ...

American Chemical

...Introduction Dixon Corporation, a U.S.-based chemical company, is mulling on buying a plant from American Chemical Corp. American Chemical’s Collinsville plant makes sodium chlorate for the paper and pulp industry. Dixon will have to pay $12 million as purchase price for the plant. It may also pay $2.25 million to complete the laminate technology developed by the plant’s research and development staff, which is expected to improve the plant’s efficiency. Dixon already has transacted business with some of American Chemical’s major customers. Dixon, however, believes that the acquisition will enable it to widen product lines and penetrate the paper and pulp industry. Analysis To determine the economic feasibility of the acquisition, we can compute for the NPV of the acquisition, with or without the new technology. The NPV will show whether the Collinsville purchase will increase shareholder’s wealth or lead the company to insolvency. Under the net present value method, the weighted average cost of capital is used as the discount rate to calculate the present value of future cash inflows. Hence, for the case study, we will compute for the WACC, prepare projected cash flows then compute the NPV. Solution WACC The all-equity beta (β) of Dixon is 1.06. We assume that we could have a beta of 1.9 for the production of sodium chlorate, basing from the betas of other chemical firms. We could re-lever Dixon’s beta by using its 35% target......

Chemical Senses

...Chemical Senses Jenny McDowell PSY/345 04/18/2016 Adam Castleberry Chemical Senses Chemical senses are the connection of smell and taste. Different fluids and water are chemical substances that dissolve in the mouth that is a stimuli of taste. “There are four basic descriptions that stimuli taste, they are the following, bitter, salty, sour and sweet. These sensations can be combined to stimulate different types of stimulation of taste,” (Bartoshuk, L. M., & Beauchamp, G. K.) (1994), Chemical senses. Examples would consist of salt and vinegar potato chips, sweet and sour chicken, and other different combinations. Taste buds that are located on the tongue are called receptors, there are thousands of tiny bumps (taste buds) all around the tongue that are called papillae. Within each papilla there are many taste buds and information is conveyed by nerves, then to the thalamus and finally to the area of the cortex. “For smell, in humans the olfactory receptors work together to detect different types of smells, there are over 400 types of different sensors in the receptors of the olfactory,” (Monell chemical senses center; extensive variability in olfactory receptors influences human odor perception. (2013). The stimuli chemical substances are in the atmosphere, which as in a result the olfactory receptors are simulated by these substances. The receptors are located in the upper portions of the nasal passages. The olfactory nerve is formed when......

Chemical Element

...Hydrogen Hydrogen is the first element of the Periodic table, and is represented by the symbol H. It is the lightest element, weighing on average 1.00794 amu (atomic mass units), and it mostly consists of one proton and one electron, with no neutrons. It bonds with almost every other element of the periodic table, and is the most important component of organic matter, after carbon. The discovery of hydrogen Hydrogen gas was first artificially synthesized by Phillip von Hohenheim (known as Paracelsus) by mixing metals with strong acids. He was unaware that the flammable gas produced by this chemical reaction was a new chemical element. In 1671, Robert Boyle rediscovered the reaction between iron and diluted acids, which results in the production of hydrogen gas. He noted that these fumes were highly flammable and that the flame gave off a lot of heat, but not much light. In 1766, Henry Cavendish was the first to recognize hydrogen gas as a discrete substance, by identifying the gas from a metal-acid reaction as “flammable air”. In 1781 he was the first person to find that the gas produces water when burned. This was a key experiment in disproving the Aristotelian theory of the four elements. As a consequence of his work he is given credit for its discovery as an element but it was Antoine Lavoisier who in 1783 named the element hydrogen (from the Greek hydro meaning water and genes meaning creator) after he reproduced Cavendish's findings. Hydrogen......

Chemical Weapons

...INTRODUCTION The following research paper has been compiled to provide an insight into Chemical Weapons (CW). It deals with the description and the usage of various chemical reagents used by various countries and their negative effects. The following also shows the policies of countries towards chemical weapons, their stockpiles and their lethality and disposal. The following report also shows the history of chemical warfare, their demilitarisation, proliferation and the various councils set up to reduce their use. It also includes a news release by the sunshine project on the use of chemical weapons by the US military. All in all it tells you everything about chemical weapons and explosives. Chemical Warfare Chemical warfare (CW) involves using the toxic properties of chemical substances as weapons. This type of warfare is distinct from Nuclear warfare and Biological warfare, which together make up NBC, the military acronym for Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (warfare or weapons). None of these fall under the term conventional weapons which are primarily effective due to their destructive potential. Chemical warfare does not depend upon explosive force to achieve an objective. Rather it depends upon the unique properties of the chemical agent weaponized. A lethal agent is designed to injure or incapacitate the enemy, or deny unhindered use of a particular area of terrain. Defoliants are used to quickly kill vegetation and deny its use for cover and concealment. It...
