On Consulting Services in Chemistry
My name is Dr. Claudia Arnold, I live in Germany near the city of Ulm and work as a consulting chemist. Since the final years of my studies, I have been supplying engineers with the chemical calculations and data necessary for plant design. Where chemistry and engineering meet, you have to work together. While a chemist might find it difficult to calculate the pressure drop in a tubing system, (s)he will oftenly much easier than an engineer calculate the chemical parameters of the substances that are to be handled. That could be anything from the necessary amount of buffer substance to the quantity of nascent gas that is to be expected. Anything from corrosive properties to pH values, from solubilities, miscibilities to potential reactive hazards.
More often than not, the major part of the work is information retrieval – sometimes using the web, but more often scientific or patent databases. Among my customers are
- engineering service companies
- chemical companies
- intellectual property managers
- journalists, writers and even illustrators – and others.
Anybody who from time to time needs to “rent a chemist” or needs some sort of chemical information as soon as possible. So, my customers ask me when the problem is about chemistry, and do not try to struggle through all by themselves. They know that it speeds up their projects and helps them save a lot of money. Some problems are solved with one page of information, other projects need to be accompanied for years.
My specialty, though not the only field I work in, is adsorption technique, especially with inorganic adsorbents. Another field of expertise is data retrieval and sourcing of chemicals and components. For more information, download the resumee and reference list as a PDF-file.
„Zeolites in VOC Abatement and Waste Gas Purification“
You can download the book chapter „Zeolites in VOC Abatement and Waste Gas Purification“ for free. It is the one I have contributed to the collection of reviews that make up the book, apart from writing the introduction and doing the scientific editing.
„Assessing the feasibility of waste gas purification technologies using only the simplest of tools“
You can also download an extended manuscript of a presentation I held during the 3P Adsorption Week in April 2021. I talk about feasibility studies in the early stages of a project, when nobody wants to spend a lot of time and money on large studies: „Early Stage Feasibility Assessments„, PDF, 1,5 MB
