General description

Ascarite® is sodium hydroxide coated silica mainly used as carbon dioxide adsorbents. It is the second generation of the original Ascarite, which was derived from granular asbestos. Ascarite rapidly and quantitatively adsorbs carbon dioxide, (and acid gases), and is useful in a number of analytical and microanalytical procedures, physiological studies, etc.


Ascarite® can be used as a carbon dioxide (CO2) trap.

Features and Benefits

The material is self-indicating, gradually changing color (to white) within a narrow zone due to the formation of sodium carbonate.

Without therapeutic intervention, corneal neovascularization rapidly compromises visual acuity, and is a leading cause of blindness. Artesunate was reported to inhibit angiogenesis in tumors, although, the effects of artesunate on nontumor angiogenesis have not been investigated. This study was designed

The dissociative adsorption and electrooxidation of CH(3)OH at a Pd electrode in alkaline solution are investigated by using in situ infrared spectroscopy with both internal and external reflection modes. The former (ATR-SEIRAS) has a higher sensitivity of detecting surface species
