Journal Highlight: Thermal and chemical analysis of flammability and combustibility of fir wood in cone calorimeter coupled to FTIR apparatus

Date: Apr 4, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The thermal degradation of fir wood was studied in a cone calorimeter under well-ventilated atmosphere with the exhaust gases analysed by FTIR spectroscopy.

Stroke monitoring: NIR gets in the patient's head

Date: Apr 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

A near-infrared monitoring device has been developed by scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. The system could be used for bedside monitoring of cerebral blood flow in ischemic stroke patients with a view to ensuring optimal treatment and improved outcomes in a potentially debilitating and often lethal condition.

Journal Highlight: Infrared spectroscopic characterization of carbonated apatite: A combined experimental and computational study

Date: Mar 3, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A combined experimental and computational approach was employed to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of using IR spectroscopy to characterise carbonated apatites prepared from synthetic and biological material.

Microreactions: Need microspectroscopy

Date: Mar 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

In situ infrared and X-ray high spatial-resolution microspectroscopy have been used for the first time to track multistep organic transformations in a flow microreactor in which gold nanoclusters act as the catalyst.

Journal Highlight: Infrared spectra of protonated coronene and its neutral counterpart in solid parahydrogen: Implications for unidentified interstellar infrared emission bands

Date: Feb 3, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

IR absorption spectra of protonated and mono-hydrogenated coronene, produced upon electron bombardment of parahydrogen containing coronene during matrix deposition, were discussed in terms of interstellar unidentified infrared emission bands.

Fire: Home is where the hearth is

Date: Feb 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Humans began using fire probably around 1 million years ago, but new infrared spectroscopic work by an Israeli team suggests that we built our first hearths to give us more control over fire about 300,000 years ago.

Journal Highlight: Face recognition in infants: A review of behavioral and near-infrared spectroscopic studies

Date: Jan 6, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Recent findings on infants' face recognition provided by both behavioral studies and neuroimaging studies using NIRS have been reviewed.

Crowdsourcing drug discovery: Antitumour compound identified

Date: Jan 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

American researchers have used "crowdsourcing" - the cooperation of a large number of interested  non-scientists via the internet - to help them identify a new fungus. The species contains unusual metabolites, isolated and characterized, with the help of vibrational circular dichroism (VCD). One compound reveals itself to have potential antitumour activity.

Journal Highlight: Measurement of brain activation during an upright stepping reaction task using functional near-infrared spectroscopy

Date: Dec 2, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Functional near-infrared spectroscopy was used to measure changes in brain activation from the frontal, motor, and premotor brain regions during an upright step task.

Cooking up cocoa: Ammonia analysis

Date: Dec 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

The potent aroma precursors that give cocoa its distinctive smell and flavour are due to fermentation processes. As such quality control relies on the use of analytical techniques to monitor progress. Researchers in France have now developed a near infrared spectroscopic method that is fast and efficient.
