Explanation:
In this context "con pregiudizio" refers to knowledge about how the chemical reacts without direct observation. Rather, what science already knows about the chemical and its behavior in various settings.

neutral  philgoddard: I'm not sure what the Italian means, but "preconceived" has negative connotations and is unlikely to be appropriate here.

  -> After looking at it again, I agree, you are both right. Preconceived isn't appropriate here. Leaving it as "based on expectations" is better. Thank you.
