Scientists from the universities of Oxford and Manchester, UK, have used a mass spectrometry molecular fingerprinting technique to identify one Neanderthal bone from around 2000 tiny bone fragments.
Using time-, energy- and angular-resolved photoelectron imaging a team of researchers has been able to make snapshots of coupled Rydberg orbitals evolving in time during an ultrafast autoionisation process.
University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, researchers have made a microscopic snapshot of the early renal lipid changes in acute kidney injury, using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) tissue imaging to localise the changes.
New method allows hyperpolarised xenon gas, to be dissolved into minute samples of substances without disrupting their molecular order during NMR spectroscopy.
Researchers at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA, have determined that light reflectance spectroscopy can differentiate between malignant and benign prostate tissue with 85% accuracy.
Terahertz radiation is of growing interest due to its potential for new spectroscopy and imaging applications as well as wireless communication networks with extremely high bandwidth. However, there are few off-the-shelf components available for manipulating terahertz waves.
Fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to study the ancient pigment, Egyptian blue.
Entries for the IRDG Chalmers and Dent Student Travel Award for a PhD to present their research at the SciX meeting.
The protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have helped to visualise the protein in healthy cells.
We are all probably aware of the detection of metabolites in wastewater to indicate the levels of illegal drug usage in a locality, but researchers at the University of Valencia have extended this to monitor alcohol consumption in near real time.
Fake or low-quality medicines and food supplements are a continuing global problem in developing nations, and indeed the developed world is not immune. A low-cost, portable prototype using nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy can detect tainted medicines and food supplements.
