Chemical fibers have long been studied for their properties and their use in manufacturing and medical applications.
As such, there has been much interest in finding out the molecular properties of these fibers.
Now, researchers at the University of Arizona have taken a molecular approach and identified the chemical elements of a chemical fiber.
The study was published today in the journal Nature Communications.
In the study, researchers used a technique called ion-exchange chromatography to measure the atomic weights of chemical fibers.
These are the elements that make up the fibers.
They were able to identify the chemical bonds between the fibers and their chemical constituents.
They found that the atomic weight of the chemical fibers is much smaller than previously thought, and the atomic number of the chemicals inside are much smaller.
This is an important finding because the chemical properties of chemical fiber are extremely variable, and scientists don’t know much about the structure of the molecular structure of these chemicals.
The researchers say their work provides a better understanding of chemical properties and the properties of the fiber itself.
“We found that chemical elements are present in a molecular structure that is much less than previously believed, which suggests that chemical fibers may not only have a structural component but also the structure that underlies it,” said lead author and doctoral student Jonathan W. Johnson.
“This suggests that they may have a functional component and function that is not yet understood.”
Johnson’s co-author is senior author David P. Jones, associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and biochemistry at Arizona State University.
