free energy refers to the amount of internal energy in a thermodynamic system that is available to do work. There are different forms of thermodynamic free energy

Petroleum Refining is defined as the industrial process of production of useful petroleum products from crude oil. The crude oil in its raw form is a dark and sticky liquid which is not useful. To get the usable products from the crude oil, it needs to be refined.

These are those polymers which decompose under aerobic or anaerobic conditions, as a result of the action of microorganism/enzymes.

Crystal field theory established in 1929 explains the interaction of the metal ion and the ligand as a pure electrostatic reaction

Polyvinyl chloride is produced from the main component. It is white, brittle solid material available in powder form or granules.

Chirality is an important property of asymmetry in many branches of science. A chiral molecule or ion exists in two stereoisomers that are mirror images of each other, called enantiomers

Optical activity is the ability of a chiral molecule to rotate the plane of plane-polarised light.some organic compounds cause the rotation of polarized light

Fluorescence spectrometry is a fast, simple and inexpensive method to determine the concentration of an analyte in solution based on its fluorescent properties.

Amines are functional groups and compounds having a basic nitrogen atom with a lone pair. In other terms amines are the derivatives of ammonia(NH3)

Elastomers are polymers showing properties of both viscosity and elasticity and are also called viscoelasticity. The molecules of elastomers held together by weak intermolecular forces

Coagulation is a chemical process that is used in water treatment,a coagulant is added to remove the dispersed oils.

Enantiomers are a pair of molecules that exist in two forms that are mirror images of one another but cannot be superimposed one upon the other

Diastereomers are compounds that can be defined as having similar sequence of bonded elements and same molecular formula, they are however non superimposable and non-mirror images

Enthalpy is the measurement of energy in a thermodynamic system. The quantity of enthalpy equals the total content of heat of a system

Pyrolysis is the heating of an organic material, such as biomass, in the absence of oxygen.

Calcination is a very simple chemical process, where the solid material or the substance is heated in a controlled environment, in the process the temperature is also regulated
