Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Interstellar cyanoacetylene: Cationic and cloudy

Researchers in China have used zero-kinetic energy photoelectron spectroscopy to determine the quantum energy levels of the cyanoacetylene cation with unprecedented detail, the work has fundamental merit in organic chemistry but might also improve our understanding of interstellar clouds and the atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon Titan where this ion is present in abundance.

A bioelectronic nose that can detect the common contaminants of "off" water, namely geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol, has been developed to preclude the need for cumbersome gas chromatographic or mass spectrometric testing equipment.

A flat axe (arsenic bronze) and a sickle (tin bronze) were subjected to multilaboratory analysis using INAA, ED–XRF, PIXE, TRXRF, FAAS, ICP–AES, ICP–MS, SEM–EDS, LA–ICP–MS and PGAA and the results compared.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

Professor Tony Mallet of the University of Greenwich presents an essay on elemental compositions from 'accurate mass' determinations.

See how you can determine the emission spectra of hydrogen and other elements with a diffraction grating, a meterstick, and a little trigonometry.
