 The rest of the world was asleep as China grew to become a goliath in the rare earth industry. It took the rest of the world 20 years to wake up to the realization that the future of high technology could be in the hands of this one supplier. While there may be ample rare earth elements in the earth’s crust, the challenge is in locating reserves worth mining and putting into place the infrastructure and processes necessary to mine and process them. 
   
 China produces 96 percent of the world’s rare earth metals. Industrialized countries have realized that with a monopoly...

Ketones usually simple are compounds that contain a carbonyl group, and due to exclusion of reactive groups such as –Cl or –OH, ketones are considered simple in nature. Industrial solvent acetone and sugar (ketoses) are some of the commonly used ketones. Various methods are implemented for the production of ketones in academic laboratories on an industrial scale, and are also produced in certain ways by organisms. Ketones are manufactured in industries on a large scale as pharmaceuticals, polymer precursors and solvents. On the basis of their type, ketones are divided into...
