espectively. A reconciliation of reported to adjusted operating margins is below. The Q4 2010 gross margin of 51.7% was up 160 basis points over the 2009 level due to our ability to enhance margins from higher sales and favorable product mix, partially offset by currency impacts. This improvement was partially offset by higher S,G&A costs, primarily from incentive compensation costs resulting from the improved financial performance for the full year.  The Q4 2010 pretax restructuring costs of $11 million related to the previously announced voluntary early retirement program and the consolidation of certain manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Europe. These restructuring actions reflect the Company's efforts to improve operating efficiencies and lower its fixed cost structure as part of a longer term goal to improve operating margins to a range of 26% to 27%. The retroactive reinstatement of the U.S. R&D tax credit in the fourth quarter of 2010 provided a $0.02 benefit to diluted EPS in the fourth quarter. This benefit was offset by a currency impact of an equal amount.  

Free cash flow (defined below) for 2010 was a record $424 million, an increase of $28 million over 2009.  Higher net income and lower capital expenditures were the primary contributors to this increase.  A reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is below.

Other highlights from global sales growth initiatives include:

  • Worldwide sales of research products through the Company's award winning web site as a percentage of total research sales were 49% for the fourth quarter of 2010 and 48% for the full year of 2010, up from 45% for the full year 2009.
  • Sales in International markets (Asia Pacific and Latin America) continued to show strength with reported and organic growth of 21% and 16%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2010. In the Company's focus markets of China, India and Brazil, sales collectiv
