Raman spectra of silicate and carbonaceous minerals in three ordinary chondrites have been measured to improve understanding of the impact process including peak metamorphic pressures present in carbon-bearing ordinary chondrites.

The extraction of phenols from grape skin and seeds has been optimized by researchers at the University of Seville, Spain and Dublin Technology Institute, Ireland. They used Raman and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopies to confirm the identities of the compounds remaining in the residue after processing.
