Our policy is to not publicly disclose our clients. If you would a tesimonial or to contact one of our clients, under conditions of confidentiality/nondisclosure, please contact us. Below is a partial list of past client projects. How can we help you?

Polymer Auto Parts - North America

A North American manufacturer of automobile parts sought help on bending and forming polymeric parts via methods other than thermal heating. Sabol provided information on portions of the electromagnetic spectrum that could be useful, the frequency and temperature dependence, information on relevant molecular physical properties, molecular components, substituents, and co-polymers, cross-linking, and additives that would react strongly, and ASTM test specifications.

3-D Printing Materials

An Asian investor sought information about 2-D and/or 3-D printing advanced materials or specialty chemical technologies that are currently available for license, joint development, and/or investment. Sabol provided leads on UV curable materials, high-performance ceramics, metal oxides and semiconductors, and multi-element thin films.

Cleaning Products - North America

A North American manufacturer of cleaning products sought help on additives that would appear “invisible” to the naked eye, but that would leave a residue after a cleaning application and appear when exposed to light other that the visible spectrum. Sabol provided information on dye photophysics, solubility, and other relevant parameters in a cleaning product formulation.

Spot Test Paper - Asia

An Asian company wanted to enter the aqueous ion spot-test market and sought help on the chemistry of dyes and other molecular species that would change color when exposed to the species of interest. Sabol provided the chemistry of ion-selective dyes and the technology by which these dyes could be incorporated in to various papers and subsequently finished into test strips.

Consumer Products - North America

A North American manufacturer of foods and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals sought help during the process of licencing a novel formulation (which included various amino acids) to a multi-national consumer products company for use primarily by veterinarians, but also for human topical application. This project involved reviewing the client's internal documents for "chemical" accuracy, preparing a presentation and handouts to the licencee's personnel, and travel to the licensee to lead the marketing presentation.

Biochemicals - Europe

A European manufacturer of specialty biochemicals sought help during the process of setting up a United States warehouse and distribution/shipping facility. This project involved ensuring that all documentation with state and local agencies in creating an LLC, tax collection, waste disposal, emergency management, import, shipping and other regulations.

Silicon Purification - North America

A North American manufacturer of capital equipment that is used to purify silicon for use in semiconductor wafers sought help on the rate at which a particular transition metal coating would be etched when exposed to the chlorosilane gases at 350 degrees Celsius. Sabol documented all, except one (because of lack of published thermodynamic data), of the gases would not react spontaneously from room temperature to the temperature of interest. Sabol identified a European laboratory that was equipped to expose metal parts to the chlorosilane gases of interest at specified temperatures and verify the predictions.

Semiconductor Capital Equipment - North America

A North American manufacturer of capital equipment used in semiconductor wafer fabrication sought help on cleaning wafers during photoresist and etching. Sabol modeled the clean and etch baths (mixture of HF/NH3/HCl/H2O) and Sabol applied the classic simultaneous equilibrium analysis to the system of nine independent species, including use of activity coefficients. Sabol also provided insight on the temperature dependence, Pourbaix diagrams, and non-aqueous solvent systems for wafer cleaning and etching.

Metal Processing - North America

A North American manufacturer of stainless steel products sought help on understanding the chemistry of mixtures of concentrated sulfuric and chromic acids, pH < -2. Sabol modeled the mixture and Sabol applied the classic simultaneous equilibrium analysis to the system of nine independent species, including use of activity coefficients, to produce guidelines on replenishing the acid mixture.
