Membrane inlet mass spectrometry for in situ environmental monitoring

“Membrane inlet mass spectrometry for in situ environmental monitoring” by Simon Maher, Fred Jjunju, Iain Young, Boris Brkic and Stephen Taylor looks at a technique that is 50 years old but is now being applied for field analysis. As well as a brief overview of the technique, they show how it can be used to monitor oil-in-water levels before discharge from oil termini.

Pittcon/Analytica Report

With Pittcon and Analytica so close together this year, we have combined our reports to bring the very latest new spectroscopy product introductions from both sides of the Atlantic. Any evident trends were broadly similar to last year, with continued development in the miniaturisation of instrumentation, whether the end result is palm-sized or “luggable”. The areas of imaging and Raman spectroscopy (and sometimes both combined) produced a comparatively large number of introductions. As always, our apologies to any companies that we may have missed; we are always happy to try and include your new products in the section of that name.

Dating fossil teeth by electron paramagnetic resonance: how is that possible?

EPRMathieu Duval raises the question “Dating fossil teeth by electron paramagnetic resonance: how is that possible?”. Whilst we are all familiar with 14C dating, the use of EPR is less well known. In fact, there are less than 10 laboratories in the world able to carry out EPR dating of fossil teeth!

From lake ecology to biofuels—applications of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy to algal research

cover “From lake ecology to biofuels—applications of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy to algal research” is the topic of Andrew Dean, Jon Pittman and David  Sigee. Algae are essential for our continued live on Earth, and FT-IR spectroscopy can increase our understanding of their physiology and biotech potential.

Near infrared hyperspectral imaging for foreign body detection and identification in food processing

NIR_25-6_F3-sWith continuing food scares around the world, food producers need every tool they can get to prevent contamination of their products at every stage of production. Hyperspectral reflectance imaging in the NIR combined with chemometrics shows much promise for the detection and identification of foreign bodies among food grains.
