Hi guys! Today I’m going to flipping through my biology notes from the past school year. If you’re wondering why I still sound kind of weird, I’m still sick unfortunately. So I store all of my old notes in this 2 inch binder which was featured in one of my stationery hauls a while back.

My research is about the production of biodiesel from algae in supercritical ethanol, so basically I put an alcohol high-pressure and high-temperature to convert the biomass and biofuels. The University of Birmingham is one of the best universities in the UK, especially in my field of chemical engineering, and the city’s really good, so it’s

Chemists like to call their discipline the fundamental science. There is chemistry in almost everything. The focus here at UC Merced is more physical based, so what we do is materials energy research, so we’ve sort of taken that to a core area. We have four different emphasis tracks with in the program. There is

In Stoichiometry PART I, we learned the basics about this kind of chemical bookkeeping. If you have a balanced chemical equation, and some measured values, you can use this information to find whatever is unknown. It’s really common to measure the amount of one reactant, in order to figure out how much product you expect

In this video you will learn how condensation polymers form, some examples of condensation polymers and the uses of these polymers. Unlike addition polymers where monomers react to form a single product, in a condensation polymerization reaction not only is the polymer formed but also a small molecule is eliminated or lost, normally water. Polyesters
