Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Viagra cheats exposed by TLC

Health supplements in some countries are frequently adulterated with PDE5 inhibitors, such as sildenafil (Viagra) or unapproved analogues. Researchers from Tianjin University of Science and Technology in China used a combination of TLC and Raman spectroscopy for the rapid identification of these pharmaceutical products in supplement samples.

Modern analytical techniques, such as HRMS (high-resolution mass spectrometry), enable the simultaneous detection of a large number of compounds, but normally rely on analytical standards of all the compounds being available, which may not be the case. Researchers from the Zurich Official Food Control Authority have developed an LC-HRMS method that identifies compounds without the use of standards, demonstrating its efficiency by identifying veterinary compounds spiked into meat and fish extracts.

A computer simulation by US scientists reveals how a high-energy plasma can be used to toughen up carbon nanotubes.

An entropy minimization technique that can eliminate the need for comprehensive preprocessing steps has been developed to detect organophosphorus pesticides in a fortified orange juice sample by GC/MS.
