DISCOVERIES IN CHEMISTRY AND THEIR IMPACTS ON PUBLIC LIFE INTRODUCTION Every single day, without even realising it, we use so many things that are brought to us by the discoveries and advances in chemistry. Many of these things we take for granted, and don 't even bother to question how it got there, why it is there, and how it works. Chemistry makes up everything in our lives, from the air that we breathe, to the plastic on the keyboard I 'm typing on now, and a in depth study of some of the wonderful things chemistry has do for the modern day world, will help us to appreciate everything we have a great deal more. For as long as we know, scientists have been creating, and improving new strategies to improve the lives of humans.…show more content…
EFFECT: improved workability, decreased residual deformation, increased relative elongation at rupture, and improved appearance. 2 tbl, 4 ex | | | HIGH-PRESSURE BOTTLE AND METHOD OF ITS MANUFACTURE | FIELD: protracted storage and transportation of compressed and liquefied gases, mainly fire extinguishers. EFFECT: enhanced reliability and durability; facilitated procedure. 3 cl, 11 dwg | | | | | ------------------------------------------------- INVENTION OF PAINT: Paint is one of the greatest inventions. The secret is a new "copolymer surfactant" molecule that binds the color into a thicker, more durable paint. The new paint molecules are long chains that surround pigment molecules, much like a strip of Velcro wrapped around a tennis ball, which provides more space for the latex to cling to. As a result, the paint covers any color in a single coat, leaves a washable finish. | | INVENTION OF MOLDING FINGERPRINTS:Benjamin Moore’s new Aura interior paint doesn’t require a primer, and the paint doesn’t stick, thanks to innovative chemistry.Materials chemists at the University of Toronto have developed a new elastic light-sensitive material that changes color based on pressure and could be used to capture data-rich fingerprints in multiple colors. The material could also be used in pressure sensors in consumer products, such as consumer electronics, airbag
