Near-infrared fights cancer: Barrett's oesophagus

Date: Oct 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Potentially precancerous changes that occur in the lining of the gullet, a condition known as Barrett's oesophagus, can be detected early using infrared fluorescence, according to a new study.

Journal Highlight: Toward extreme biophysics: Deciphering the infrared response of biomolecular solutions at high pressures

Date: Sep 5, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

FTIR spectroscopy and computer simulations have been used to reveal the molecular response of piezolytes in water under high pressure to gain insight into biomolecular function at pressures relevant to life on Earth under extreme conditions.

Drug testing: FTIR for festivals

Date: Aug 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

A music festival is probably the last place you would expect to see a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. But, under canvas a team of analytical chemists and drug advisers is hoping to help festivalgoers avoid the pitfalls of taking illegal drugs whose true constituents they know nothing about.

Say hello to SENIRA: Oil's well

Date: Jul 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in the US have, for the first time, demonstrated that surface-enhanced near-infrared absorption (SENIRA) spectroscopy can be used as a highly sensitive analytical tool.

Blue-light molecular motor: FTIR not seeing red

Date: Jun 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Shining blue light on a plate-like crystal suspended in water makes it continuously alternate between bending and stretching, acting as a light-controlled molecular motor.

Journal Highlight: Characterization of printing inks using DART-Q-TOF-MS and attenuated total reflectance (ATR) FTIR

Date: May 30, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

ATR-FTIR spectroscopy and DART MS have been used in tandem to analyze four different classes of printing inks: inkjets, toners, offset, and intaglio.
