This channel covers all aspects of atomic spectroscopy, including atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), atomic emission spectroscopy (AES), glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy (GD-OES), laser and plasma spectroscopy.
Non-contact atomic force microscopy has been used to investigate simple chemical reactions at atomic resolution confirming what chemists knew from spectroscopy. The research offers new rules for predicting the properties of catalytic reactions and for designing novel catalysts.Read More
With global concerns about food quality and food safety continuing to garner attention, it is important for both manufacturers and regulatory bodies to have robust analytical instrumentation and methods to ensure accurate and precise results. For the measurement of inorganic elements and nutrients, sample preparation can be of critical importance to the quality of the analysis. Here we discuss the process of sample preparation and analysis, tools and techniques for the measurement of inorganic elements in...Read More
In March 2016, Shimadzu launched the ICPMS-2030 Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer, the company’s first global ICPMS platform. Shimadzu has been involved in ICP-OES since the conception of the technique in the late 1970ies (ICPQ-100 in 1977). Shimadzu also has a proven track in ICPMS technology and has achieved a leading role in the global market with Asia as the target area so far.Read More
