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.
Scientists have shown for the first time the maximum theoretical limit on the energy required to control the magnetization of a single atom. The fundamental work could have implications for the future of research into magnetism and devices that utilize the phenomenon in technology.Read More
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy has many unique attributes that simplify elemental analysis of materials. A chief advantage is eliminating time-consuming and destructive sample preparation steps required in most other bulk analysis methods. In this webinar we cover, amongst other things. the fundamentals of LIBS instrumentation and sampling and analyzing surface layers and coatings.Read More
Two seconds here could save you months in the lab by using Wiley's Compound Search tool. Check the database coverage now... it's free! We understand that you don't have time to wade through thousands of results. Compound Search's sole purpose is to tell you whether a compound appears in a specific database so that you'll know whether that database meets your needs. To speed this up, we provide exact structure matches only. Compound Search enables users to perform...Read More

An international collaboration has developed a technique for creating quantum dots with identical, deterministic sizes as revealed by scanning tunnelling microscopy. The research could allow quantum dot architectures to be constructed with complete control allowing technologists to develop new nanophotonics and quantum information processing systems as well as enabling various fundamental scientific studies.

Atomic absorption spectroscopy has been used in a new study to analyse changing concentrations of calcium in tooth enamel as it responds to the antibacterial effects of strong coffee on oral microbes. The research suggests that while coffee may well be the downfall of those who wish to have a shiny, white smile, it could at least prevent coffee drinkers from losing their stained teeth.View All Ezines
While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. Read a free chapter from "Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry " here.
