Applied Chemical Laboratories Offers Chemical Purification Services to Remove Trace Ionic Contamination from Photovoltaic, Electronic and Nanotechnology Chemicals
(Nanowerk News) Applied Chemical Laboratories, Inc., an innovator in high purity, eco-friendly electronic chemicals and specialized coatings now offers a custom service for removing contaminants from ultra-pure polymeric and organic chemicals and compounds. The service is tailored for lab scale development projects in the computer chip, photovoltaic, and pharmaceutical industries.
“Transition to sub-20 nm node semiconductor manufacturing and other breakthrough technologies requires ultra-pure, contamination-free chemistry in order to achieve defect free products and high production yields,” said Dr. Javad Sahbari, Applied Chemical president and chief technical officer. Customers come to us when they need to remove trace ionic contamination from process enabling chemicals they are developing. In most instances we are able to reduce metal ions and other contaminants to 1ppb or less.”
ACLI employs repeatable and easily scalable technology to achieve these results; expertise that has been accumulated over 20 years of analyzing and purifying organic solvents, chemicals and polymers. The example below shows partial results achieved in a recent purification project for an organic polymer.
Others services provided by Applied Chemical Laboratories include custom synthesis, analysis of unknowns, product characterization, product failure analysis and new product development. “Our goal is to help customers move their process enabling chemicals from the laboratory to pilot production in the shortest time possible,” said Sahbari.
