As noted, I am a new member. My main focus is on chemical engineering, and I will have some pretty direct questions in the following days. In a nutshell, I am working on developing a couple of new materials and need input, mostly because I am not a "schooled" chemist, and need some input by those whom are. I have been studying much concerning the atmospheric cycling of chemicals, and have some workable ideas for the laboratory environment, as well as new synthesis ideas. I look forward to learning from you all.
