Chemistry

Chemistry

corning-chemistry

Because it is so fundamental to our world, chemistry touches almost every aspect of our existence in some way. In chemistry, research can take many forms, from synthesizing compounds to building computational models or gathering and analyzing data using a wide variety of instruments and techniques.

Corning™ has been a valued supplier to chemists for nearly a century since the introduction of PYREX™ low expansion borosilicate glass that is the quality standard for labware because of its clarity, strength, heat and chemical resistance.

The following provides a step-by-step view of the Corning products and brands that support the chemistry process. Also available is a downloadable PDF overview: Glassware Solutions for Chemistry.

Weigh/Mix/Heat

Basic tasks done routinely in chemistry labs.


corning-chemistry-store

Store

Chemical solutions or solids should be stored in vessels that are chemically compatible and are properly sealed and labeled.

 


corning-chemistry-separate

Separate/Purify

An important step in chemistry is the separation of a mixture into its components and the removal of impurities or contaminants.


corning-chemistry-extract

Extract/Concentrate

Extraction in chemistry is the separation of a substance from a matrix. Concentration is the amount of a substance per defined space or the removal of excess solvent. Concentration usually is expressed in terms of mass per unit volume-ppm.


corning-chemistry-measure

Measure

The importance of accurate and precise measurement is critical for many scientific procedures. Being accurate means to measure to a true value or quantity and being precise means to deliver accurate results repeatedly. Corning offers a wide range of volumetric vessels designed to support your requirements for liquid measurement.


Types of Plasticware

  • Verified: Each flask is tested to ensure it meets its stated accuracy
  • Pyrex: Type I borosilicate glass that conforms to ASTM standards for glass composition and tolerances
  • Class A: For Pyrex, ware is manufactured to ASTM tolerances E-694 for volumetric ware, ASTM-542 for calibration of volumetric ware, and ASTM E-288 for volumetric flasks
  • Class B: Typically is calibrated to twice the tolerance of Class A Materials
  • Serialized/Certified: Pyrex flasks that are manufactured to Class A tolerances with a subset of manufacturing lot tested for accuracy
  • Polymethylpentene (PMP): Volumetric flasks manufactured to Class A tolerances as defined by ISO 1042
