Things Scientists Say...

Posted by Rick Paulino

Jun 13, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Science is the study of the world using collected knowledge, observation, and experimentation. Those in the sciences are generally known for being quite serious, dare I say, dull. However, that is not always the chase. Take for example Albert Einstein, unquestionably one of the most brilliant minds to ever inhabit the earth, but also a wit and sense of humor maybe equally as impressive. In this blog, I’d like to share some funny Einstein quotes as well as quotes from other brilliant minds. Enjoy!

Frog Saliva Viscosity

Posted by Grace

Feb 6, 2017 5:10:01 PM

 

According to a recent discovery, a frog is able to change the viscosity of its saliva in order to catch its prey. When extending its tongue out at the prey, the viscosity of the frog's saliva decreases. Once the prey is on the frog's tongue being drawn closer to the frog, the frog's saliva thickens up far more viscous than honey.Read our application notes on kinetic studies!

Additives Control Lubricant Viscosity and Provide More Consistent Performance

Posted by Jobylyn Pineda

Apr 14, 2016 1:47:38 PM

Valvoline has recently launched a pressure-activated cobalt grease that can protect engine parts from damage especially in high temperature environments. The purpose of the grease is to provide a continuous film between moving parts under pressure. Normally under high temperature, the friction between moving parts and the lubricant reduces the viscosity of the film, potentially resulting in metal-to-metal contact. Valvoline’s cobalt grease employs a lithium sulfonate complex thickening system that is effective in dissipating heat and preventing corrosion in extreme conditions.

First FDA-Approved 3D Printed Prescription Pill!

SPRITAM, developed by Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, recently became the first FDA approved drug to be manufactured through 3D printing.  Unlike other antiepileptic drugs, which can be difficult for patients to swallow, the highly porous structure of SPRITAM allows it to quickly dissolve when taken with a sip of water.  Additionally, the 3D printed structure allows for higher dosages of medication to be delivered in a single pill.

Viscosity on Demand

Posted by David Nieto

Oct 13, 2015 2:30:00 PM

Offshore oil producers have long wished to have a magical remote control for the viscosity of crude oil. An ideal device like this will allow them to reduce the viscosity of crude oil for a few hours, while it is pumped through pipelines to onshore tanks, where it would be restored to its original thick and viscous conditions. Scientist R. Tao and X. Xu have finally cracked it!
