A Targeted Approach to Detect Controlled Substances in Suspect Tablets Using Attenuated Total Internal Reflection Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging
Attenuated total internal reflection Fourier-transform infrared imaging confirms the presence of drug components in illicit tablets.
Graphene: Why the Nobel Prize and Why Raman?
Graphene has potential applications ranging from computer monitors to solar cells, and Raman spectroscopy is a useful method for its characterization.
Classical Least Squares, Part IV: Spectroscopic Theory Continued
The connection between the mathematics of classical least squares and the graphical displays used to present it is examined in further detail.
The Nature and Utility of Mass Spectra
What tools can MS practitioners use to obtain unambiguous answers from unknown spectra?
Do You Get What You Pay For?
As consumers, we often wonder if it's worth it to spend more for products that purport to be of higher quality. New research published in this issue indicates that in the case of pet food, the answer seems to be no.
Analysis of Toxic Trace Metals in Pet Foods Using Cryogenic Grinding and Quantitation by ICP-MS, Part II
Dog and cat foods are examined for toxic metal content and the results are compared to WHO and EPA values.
Total Reflectance X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy
X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) provides sensitive analysis of the atomic composition of samples. The technique is particularly well-suited for analyzing the elemental range from sodium to uranium, which covers the majority of the metallic elements.
