Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: The heat is on: Thermal behaviour of MOFs

The first measurements of the thermoelectric behaviour of a nanoporous metal-organic framework (MOF), including infrared temperature measurements, have been carried out and could point the way to an entirely new class of materials for a wide range applications from heatsinks for computer chips and cameras to energy harvesting.

Near-IR spectroscopy was used to detect and discriminate between Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cow milk, to assess the degree of spoilage.

Scientists at l'École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have successfully combined infrared spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy in nanoIR to distinguish between disease-causing aggregation of proteins and normal activity, the findings could lead to new clues regarding neurodegenerative diseases.

Prediction models were developed with FT-NIR spectroscopy and multivariate analysis for the cellulose crystallinity index, saccharification and ethanol yield, and glucan, hemicellulose and lignin content of two pulps.

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.

Written specially for by Prof Javier Laserna at the University of Málaga.

The infrared spectrum is rich in information, and this article by John Coates, taken from the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry is intended to help the reader to extract the maximum information.

Protein Science, the flagship journal of The Protein Society, serves an international forum for publishing original reports on all scientific aspects of protein molecules. The Journal publishes papers by leading scientists from all over the world that report on advances in the understanding of proteins in the broadest sense. Protein Science aims to unify this field by cutting across established disciplinary lines and focusing on “protein-centered” science.
