IR @ spectroscopyNOW

The infrared spectroscopy channel covers all forms of molecular analysis using IR spectroscopy including near infrared (NIR), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and associated non-destructive testing methods used in environmental analysis, art and archaeology, homeland security, forensics, drug testing and pharmaceutical analysis.

Monthly Highlight

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Methane methods: IR reveals catalytic details

Infrared spectroscopy techniques and a quantum theory model have been used by an international team to investigate the nature of methane dissociation reactions on platinum. The results could offer a route map to novel catalysts for converting natural gas into higher chemicals.

Pillars of Creation: Clues to life

David Bradley

May 1, 2018

thumbnail image: Pillars of Creation Clues to life

Scientists have mimicked the extreme conditions of deep space - cryogenic temperatures, ultrahigh vacuum, lots of ice particles covered with methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide - and then blasted this miniature universe with low energy electrons, which are abundant in space, to see if they can generate the molecules of life, the amino acids. They used various techniques to pluck out information about of the products and suggest that Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy might be used to obtain...

The general structural principles, chemical variations and IR spectra of the rapidly growing family of hydrocerussite‐related minerals and synthetic materials have been reviewed and the crystal structures of hydrocerussite from Merehead quarry, Somerset, England, and of its synthetic analogue, have been reported here for the first time.

Starch nanocrystals produced from natural sources like rice, ragi, wheat and sorghum have been compared by FTIR, DSC and TGA, showing that more bound water interacts with starch compared to starch nanocrystals.

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.
