The application of ICP-MS for the characterization of single nanoparticles in biological and environmental water samples

The rapidly growing use of engineered nanomaterials in many environmentally relevant applications requires novel analytical approaches for determining their presence and concentrations in water and other environmental matrices. To date there are no standard methods for monitoring this emerging class of materials. Advances in ICP-MS software and hardware, available in the Agilent 7900, allow the detection of single nanoparticles in these environmental matrices. The webinar will present an application of...

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Gold too? Ions in the +II oxidation state

When it comes to atoms there are several seemingly immutable facts about many of them - their oxidation states or valencies are seemingly fixed. However, whereas gold is generally considered to exist as only gold(I) and gold(III), theoretically, a 2+ oxidation state should exist to fill the gap in the homologous series of the coinage metal ions copper(+II), silver(+II), gold(+II), and in the "relativistic" triad of platinum(+II), gold(+II), and mercury(+II).

Transversely -heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry has been used to show that drinking silicon-rich mineral water can increase the rate of urinary excretion of toxic aluminium ions in people with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS).

A new, simple and cheap DLLME procedure that was optimized for the preconcentration of trace amounts of Ni(II) for its determination by FAAS has been applied to some fake jewelry and cosmetics samples.

Various techniques including graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry have been used to assess the bioavailability of metals ions present in beef, pork, and chicken after thermal treatment. The study shows that high temperatures make nutrient metal ions of calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc less readily available.
