Mass spectrometry

While formidable masses are comparatively easy to measure, molecules and small particles require advanced techniques, such as mass spectrometry. A flow of new applications have been developed in a variety of fields, ranging from pharmacokinetics and microbiology to chemical analytics and medical diagnostics to environmental and even space research, the instruments often being combined with chromatographic techniques and large databases. This special topic updates you on recent developments.

  • Rapid pair production: Detection of a new reaction path in the atmosphere

    Scientists have now observed a particularly rapid type of pair production in the laboratory: Hydrocarbons double when two peroxyl radicals react with each other. This means that stable products with the carbon skeleton of both peroxyl radicals are formed, which very likely will have a peroxide struc more

    Breath analysis in disease diagnostics is a promising research field, and the advances in instrumentation allows the accurate detection of metabolites. But not only the health status of patients, but also the preservation status of museum artifacts could be monitored. Heritage science researchers ha more

  • Rice U. sleuths find metal in 'metal-free' catalysts

    Detective work by Rice University chemists has defined a deception in graphene catalysts that, until now, has defied description. Graphene has been widely tested as a replacement for expensive platinum in applications like fuel cells, where the material catalyzes the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) more

The Philae Lander

You’ve probably heard the great news over the weekend that the European Space Agency’s Philae lander has awoken from its 7 month slumber on Comet 67P, and is once again relaying collected data back to Earth. You might have less of an idea, however, of what this data is, and why it’s important. This more

Why Does Asparagus Make Urine Smell?

The latest food chemistry graphic looks at the chemistry of asparagus – specifically, why it causes the urine of some (but not all) people to smell. Over the past forty years several papers have been published on the subject, and several studies undertaken, to try and determine the chemical compound more

Mass Spectrometry and Interpreting Mass Spectra

For the fourth in the analytical chemistry series, we turn to mass spectrometry. So far, we’ve looked at how chemists can determine the presence of particular bonds present in molecules with infrared spectroscopy, and how they can gain information about the structure of molecules using hydrogen and more

  • Waiting for the future?

    A major topic during the HTC conference held in Bruges, which is focused on issues relating to hyphenation processes involving HPLC and innovative detection techniques, was the discussion concerning system volumes of modern UHPLC systems. It is again clear, according to many experts at least, that column and particle technology has outperformed the capabilities of modern UHPLC instruments. more

  • Trend barometer: taking the underground to the airport

    Yes – you can talk about an ‚underground system’ in terms of analysis. Many samples are forwarded in parallel – including unstyled raw extracts in any condition. The connection to the airport is assured and today molecules can fly in a myriad of different ways. more
