Then now, I said, you will understand what our object was in selecting our soldiers, and educating them in music and gymnastic; we were contriving influences which would prepare them to take the dye of the laws in perfection, and the colour of their opinion about dangers and of every other opinion was to be indelibly fixed by their nurture and training, not to be washed away by such potent lyes as pleasure-- mightier agent far in washing the soul than any soda or lye; or by sorrow, fear, and desire, the mightiest of all other solvents.
Changes in the oil and natural gas industry will also impact demand, with reduced drilling rates in the near term holding back solvent consumption, and relatively low crude oil and natural gas prices providing a more competitive position for conventional solvents.
Technology firms and research institutes have already started investing heavily in ensuring solvent biodegradability and zero discharge of environment and health hazards.
Gel-spun UHMWPE (ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene) fiber exhibits remarkable tensile properties [1, 2]; however, the relatively complex processing involved in its production leads to costs almost ten times more than conventional meltspun fiber [3, 4], Commercial UHMWPE gel-spinning processes are inherently inefficient, requiring spin-solvent concentrations in excess of 80% [5], Efficient extraction of large volumes of spin solvent is a major limiting factor using conventional techniques since the rate of spin-solvent extraction is generally limited by diffusion related variables such as concentration gradient, fiber diameter, and temperature.
Solvent swelling is a simple and useful technique for determining the solubility parameters of cross-linked polymers, for characterizing solvent-polymer interactions, or, using suitable theoretical models, for calculating cross-link densities and molecular weights between cross-links of polymeric networks [1-3].
The name for the process is a misnomer as the cleaning is actually achieved by solvent vapour condensing on the cooler target parts the hot liquid solvent dissolving oil and removing dirt.
Years ago, our chief analyst did just that for each shipment of solvent on arrival and occasionally sent one back because it was not the correct material.
The current major solvent types within this market are alcohols, glycols, and diols.
