High-End Scientific Analysis Platform

An investment of nearly 50 million RMB has been made to establish a high-end scientific analysis platform that is considered "the first in China and world-class" within the industry. The platform is equipped with over 20 advanced and specialized precision instruments, including nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, gas, liquid, and gel chromatographs, ion chromatographs, mass spectrometers, light scattering instruments, high-temperature and high-pressure rheometers, among others. It provides support for four research areas: basic  research, theoretical support, synthesis processes, and technological applications.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory

Within the nuclear magnetic resonance laboratory, the company has successively acquired the Varian 400M and Bruker 600M nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers. Since 2003, the Varian 400M spectrometer has been utilized for the primary structural characterization of polysaccharide products such as guar gum, as well as for structural characterization of oilfield additives and various organic substances. In 2008, the company further enhanced its capability for primary structure analysis by acquiring the Bruker 600M nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, which has contributed to advancing the company's research projects, product development, and elucidation of unknown substances.

Full-Scale Structural Characterization Technology

Based on internationally advanced instruments such as the four major chemical spectrums, dynamic and static light scattering, environmental scanning electron microscopy, and diffusion spectroscopy, the company has established a full-scale structural characterization technology for polysaccharides at molecular, chain, mesoscopic, and macroscopic scales. Through innovative techniques for precise characterization of polysaccharide molecular structure, chain conformation, and the three-dimensional network microstructure of gel solutions, the company has successfully addressed the technical challenges associated with full-scale structural characterization of polysaccharides. This achievement has significantly contributed to the theoretical development of polysaccharide structure-property relationships and facilitated the research, development, and application of highly substituted, low-concentration modified plant-based thickeners and their compatible fracturing fluids. Furthermore, this technology has greatly advanced the economic and efficient development of unconventional oil and gas reservoirs.
