A phosphorus chemical that was once considered one of the most valuable chemicals in the world is back in the spotlight.
The world was shocked when the world’s top gold miner announced last week that it was dumping its phosphorus reserves in a bid to cut carbon emissions.
Now, as we await a full price for the world-famous molecule, there’s another phosphorus product on the shelves.
The new molecule is called Phosphorus V and it’s made from phosphorus salts.
Its a key ingredient in the popular red dye, Phosphor, that’s used in cosmetics.
“It’s a highly efficient red dye that allows for a lot of color to be achieved and a lot less pollution,” said Andrew Sargent, the chief executive of the Australian company Fluor Corp., which has a majority stake in the company.
Sargent says the Phosphur V was once a very rare ingredient in cosmetics, but was now making a comeback.
“The reason for that is it has the highest solubility in the environment, so if you’re going to make a compound in a refinery, you have to be able to use that,” he said.
Phosphorus is a key element of the red-tinged pigment, Phor, and its solubilities are the highest in the atmosphere, making it a great candidate for a biofuel.
But it’s not just a bio fuel.
Phosphorous is used in fertilizers, as an organic fertiliser and in pharmaceuticals.
Fluor is also the manufacturer of some of the worlds most expensive products: the pharmaceutical drug, Vioxx.
“Phosphorous, and it was one of those things that was thought to be the last vestige of the gold rush, and there are some things that were really, really good in the past,” Sarget said.
“You could actually make the first version of that in the 1920s.
But now there’s not a lot left of that, and we’re starting to see that Phor is really starting to look like it might be a pretty good alternative to the gold-rush gold.”
The Phosphoric V molecule has a high solubilisation point, about one third the density of gold.
It can be found in the soil and can be extracted from the soil in a few hours.
It has a long shelf life, up to 30 years, making Phor a good choice for industrial use.
The Phor was developed by Fluor.
It’s currently the world leader in Phospholipase production, according to Fluor’s website.
The company also has a number of other phosphorus products on the shelf, including a phosphorus compound that is more than 80 times more powerful than the one it used to make.
It was also the first phosphorus to be certified organic.
Pholorus is made by extracting a phosphorus salt, which is made of phosphorus carbonate.
It forms a solid on contact with oxygen, and the phosphorus carbonates together to form a gel, which can be washed off the surface of the water.
The gel is then dissolved in water and mixed with a catalyst.
The phosphorus carbonic acid is then used to catalyse the reaction, and a phosphorous molecule is formed.
Fluors carbon dioxide is then added to the solution to turn the catalyst into the catalyst.
Sampson, the professor of chemical engineering at the University of Queensland, said the Phor molecule is one of several examples of phosphorus that has found a home in biogas.
“There’s been a lot more interest in biofuel production over the last couple of years, but it’s still a very niche market,” he told ABC News.
“Biogas is a big business in terms of how it’s being used.
It generates power and it can also be used for other things, such as energy efficiency.””
If you look at all the big biofuels like coal, it’s probably the most expensive fuel.
But if you look a little bit more closely at the phosphorous, it is very cheap.”
Phosphor V was first produced in the 1930s, when it was developed as a fertilizer by the Australian government.
Fluorec, the British company that developed the phosphorus-carbonate, is now one of a number companies producing Phosphors.
The company has sold its own Phor to the Chinese government, but says it is only now making it available in the United States.
Sammons team at the Australian National University is working on a new version of the molecule.
“We have a Phosphorosol V that’s just in the lab right now,” he explained.
“So we have an exciting team working on PhosphOR V that is going to be commercially available in 2017.”
The Australian team hopes to produce the molecule in Australia by 2020.
