Phosphate-Based Chemistry


Senior Member
Dear all,

how can I translate this phrase into Italian?

I thought that Phosphate-Based Chemistry may be something like:

Chimica a base di fosfato.

Waitng four your advice!
  • Hi Ali,

    Your phrase is something that describes the way phosphates act under different conditions,
    and the phrase can also be generalized to "X-based chemistry".

    I've found many examples of "chimica a base di" and a few examples of
    "chimica a base di fosfato" so it seems that the literal form works.

    Let's see what others might say.
