Short description of  the Sealing-Ring-Business  of Dietmar GLINDEMANN (efficient and economical PTFE Sealing Ring for conical glass joints)
Laboratory work with chemical glass equipment and containers often demands hermetic and clean sealing of conical joints and stoppers. Joint grease is not solvent resistant and not clean. The known PTFE-joint sleeves and stoppers are expensive and not very tight. Therefore, a fine PTFE-ring seal on ground tapered glass joints has been developed. The ring is inexpensive, gas-tight, solvent-tight, chemically inert, temperature resistant and prevents freezing of joints. Estimated 1.5 million seals have been tested on the market in the last years.

About www.phosphine.net

Applying a new developed gas chromatographic trace analytical technique we got extensive knowledge concerning the existence and formation mechanisms of phosphine in the earth’s environment. We discovered phosphine in waste gas, marsh gas, biogas, landfill gas, wetland sediment, soil, intestinal tract of mammals, faecal sludge, animal manure, landfill, technical metals, industrial waste, stone minerals, food and cosmic fall down. It was also found to be a global trace component of the earth’s atmosphere. Do not confuse phosphine (PH3) with phosgene (COCl2, Carbonoxidechloride, Carbonyldichloride, Carbonicaciddichloride).
Diphosphine (P2H4 , Diphosphane) a self igniting gas, was found in fermentation experiments using human feacal bacteria.
(Publication: Gassmann, G., Glindemann, D.: Phosphane in the Biosphere. Angew.Chem.Intern.Edit. 32 (1993) 761-763.). The results of this publication, phosphine and diphosphine, was discussed in various printed media (John Emsley) and TV media (US discovery channel...) as the igniter of methane gas in human flatus gas (to produce spontaneous human combustion (SHC), an appropriate term for this would be "ignis flatus") and in marsh gas (to form swamp lights named as Will o' the Wisp or "ignis fatuus". A biochemical pathway of how microorganisms could produce enzymes to reduce phosphate to phosphine is still not discovered.
