Deformulation and Beyond

Composition Deformulation & Reformulation Best Practices Simply put, deformulation is figuring out what something is made of and/or how it is made. It is often referred to as “reverse engineering.” Deformulation consists of a series of analytical methods and techniques used to determine the composition of a material. Also of interest, is how the various chemical components which make up …

The Advantages of Product Deformulation

Product Deformulation is a process that is used to reverse engineer chemical based materials. These materials are often Polymeric in nature. The process includes extractions, separations, and analytical investigations using specialized instruments and methods. When finished, information concerning the “recipe” of components and the structure of materials is obtained. Typical information includes the identification of polymeric, oligomeric, and monomeric components; …

The Importance of Chemical Deformulation Analysis

You may be asking what exactly is chemical deformulation analysis and why do I need it?  It’s a great question that we get asked often and we would like to share some insight from more of a business perspective rather than a technical lab perspective. First, let’s define what “Deformulation” is.  Deformulation refers to a set of analytical procedures used …
