Looking at the environment, we find that more than 95% of the items we deal with are chemicals, ready-made food, cosmetics-sanitary, petroleum and fuels, storage containers And food packaging and pharmaceuticals, plastic containers and leather goods, and many more, are composed of differently structured chemicals.
The chemicals can be structurally divided into organic and inorganic categories. Organic chemicals are materials that are found in their molecular structures of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen atoms. Oil materials and derivatives and polymers are among these materials. Minerals are substances that, in their molecular structure, are one of the elements of the periodic table, such as intermediate metals (iron, chromium, nickel, zinc, copper, etc.). Most minerals are dyes.
Chemicals used in industries are classified into two categories of artificial chemicals and natural or plant-based chemicals. We will review this type of material here.
The chemicals that are currently used in many chemical plants are organic materials that come from petroleum and its derivatives; for example, consider an oil-mill manufacturing plant; this factory It uses different materials to produce its products. Fatty acids, various metallic stearates, benzene ring compounds, alkyl groups or organic compounds with unsaturated binders are used as raw materials for the preparation of these products.
Due to the structural diversity of various organic materials, a large volume of these compounds belongs to oil derivatives. Compounds such as aniline, ammonia, acetone, acetic acid, acetylene, alkylbenzene, linear sulfonates, sulfur compounds, etc. are produced in refineries. Production conditions are special for each particular product; for the production of some high purity chemical compounds, a special catalyst should be used, which will affect the final price of the material.
Substances of plant or natural nature are almost structurally more complex than industrial materials. There are various atoms in their molecular structure, and the name of some of these materials is also strange. Typically, alkaloids, tannins, saponins, terpenes, and the like are naturally occurring plant chemicals. In order to obtain such substances, they should be isolated and extracted in various ways from the source.
Another herbal chemicals are natural sugars, which are naturally occurring in many plants and fruits. Sucrose, colza, fructose and maltose are among the most popular natural sugars. Many sugars are the result of intracellular metabolism. Some other chemicals cause color; carotene and beta-carotene, xanthophyll, and chlorophyll cause coloration in plants.
Today, chemicals are covered by all kinds of industries. Food industry, textile and leather industries, electroplating, producing animal feed, insecticides and pesticides, food and industrial dyes and ... a small part of consumers of chemical raw materials.
Chemicals such as carbon hydrates, fatty acids, proteins and sugars are the most important ingredients in food products. Fat in some foods such as corn and olive can be consumed naturally.
But the key question is, "What is the superiority of using plant chemicals to produce diverse products relative to synthetic chemicals?" The answer to this question is summarized in a phrase: "Quality and Health."
Imagine having a baby food factory or producing chocolate and candy to make the product look prettier, and make it look like a chemical dye. The harmful effects of chemical dyes The artificially produced dyes are known to all (damage to the liver and kidneys and damage to the tissues of the teeth) and, naturally, customers tend to buy products that are not hazardous to their health.
The solution is very simple. The use of plant dyes can, in addition to giving a more natural color to the product, increase its quality and health, and produce a better flavor.
Now that the benefits of using plant-specific chemicals are specified for you, you can safely choose industrial materials for use at your plant.
