James Kerschen, a former CB Research and Development chemist, said Chinese contractors are offering their services too cheaply."If you do the math, you'll find these companies are operating at a 50 percent deficit.Who's ponying up the extra money?It's their governments."

To come to his conclusion, Kerschen analyzed information on the firms' Web sites, comparing their fees with information about equipment, staffing and common industry knowledge about Chinese salaries.
China's exchange rate - pegged well below the dollar's value - also puts U.S. firms at a disadvantage, Kerschen noted.
Kerschen, who left CB Research before its recent layoffs, is now head chemist at J-Star Research, a drug chemical synthesis firm in South Plainfield, N.J.He said J-Star has positioned itself to minimize the effect of low-cost competition.
